“The Farms” at StoneRidge proposed plan moves forward with changes

March 2019

A proposed plan for the former StoneRidge Country Club property, "The Farms at StoneRidge," continues to move through the approval process with the City to become a ballot measure in November 2020.

Environmental Impact Report - According to Kevin McNamara, who is leading the proposed development, the City will be retaining a consultant to conduct an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) within a few weeks. A public workshop will be held some time in May.

Adjustments to Plan - Since the plan was shared with the community at an Open House last December, McNamara reports that several changes have been made:

  • The approximately 3.5-mile trail will now be a single 10' wide trail rather than a dual use trail that would have accomodated horses.

  • Swim and Tennis facility is being scaled down to a 3,000-5,000 square foot facility with a single pool rather than 25,000 square feet.

  • Farmscape Gardens has been selected to plan, build, and maintain the community gardens. See farmscapegardens.com for more information about their projects.

  • Dos Gringos has been identified as the agricultural operator for the development's approximate 30 acres of agrifields which are proposed to be planted with wax flower and protea.
