It won't make any difference if there is a new ordinance adopted. They rarely get enforced in santee as it is. I was in 4S ranch at a multi-million dolllar home in a gated community recently and you never see any of the ordinance related issues in this and other areas around the county where people expect that the ordinances that are in effect in those areas are enforced as to keep the quality of life and property values in those areas high.
