The response for the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s purchase of the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club’s clubhouse has been positive, according to advisory votes by both the RSF Association and the RSF Garden Club. In March, the Association announced plans to purchase the village clubhouse for $2,369,250.

According to RSF Association Manager Pete Smith, of the 786 ballots returned on the advisory vote, 667 approved of the sale. The Garden Club received a 92 percent approval rate in its vote — of the 148 returned ballots, 136 were in favor of the sale and 12 were opposed.

“(The results) are highly encouraging, especially for this board who likes to be in tune with its members,” said RSF Association President Roxana Foxx.

“It’s a clear statement of what the community wants to see,” Smith said.
