Document Description
The proposed project, Castellina Specific Plan, is a master-planned community located on approximately 794 acres, about one mile north of the City of Madera in Madera County. The Castellina Specific Plan would allow for the development of up to 3,072 market-rate and active adult single-family, multi-family, and mixed-use residential units; approximately 21 acres of commercial mixed-use; and approximately 131 acres of parks, play fields, trails, plazas, community gardens, and other open space. The project also includes a 15-acre elementary school, a wastewater treatment plant and various utilities to serve the proposed Project. The Castellina Specific Plan Program includes several phases to be constructed in approximately 15 years until sometime between 2035 and 2040. The Phase 1 Project is located in the northwest portion of the Program site and includes 67 low-density residential units, 50 very low-density residential units, open space/multi-use area, a park, wastewater treatment plant, and water wells/facilities on 96 acres to be constructed by approximately 2025.
