Document Description
The Project consists of a mixed-use development on approximately 231 acres of active agricultural land in Tulare County, California. The Project includes dedicating 10.3 acres of perimeter right-of-way leaving approximately 220 acres for development. Once developed, the proposed Project site would include approximately 1,197 total units of low, medium, and high-density residential (163.1 acres), a central park (14.1 acres), a neighborhood commercial center (10.8 acres), a school (4.9 acres), and a community center (0.78 acres). Parks would act as natural areas, provide stormwater detention, and include playgrounds, plazas and shelters, open turf areas for field sports, as well as trails for recreation. Trails throughout the site would connect to the school, parks, community center and the commercial center. An open irrigation canal currently passes through the property from the north to the south and would be piped underground within the same general alignment during Project development and flow through the channel would not be changed. The Project is proposing approximately 364 units of low-density single-family units, 281 units of medium density single-family units and townhomes, and 552 high density apartments. The Project also includes annexing approximately 863 acres into the City of Tulare, including the 231-acre Project site.
