The Southwest Dixon Specific Plan was approved in 2005 and provides for the development of residential, commercial and employment center uses within approximately 517 acres south of West A Street and east of I-80. The SWDSP is a bridge between the General Plan and City's Zoning Ordinance, and it includes policies and implementation programs to guide land use, infrastructure improvements and the area’s overall circulation pattern. As the first development to be implemented within the SWDSP, Homestead is considered an already approved project, although some implementation details are subject to Planning Commission and/or City Council approval.
Homestead is currently planned to include 1,168 single-family homes of varying sizes that will appeal to first-time home buyers, families, empty nesters and seniors. Of those, 274 are for residents age 55 and older. Also included in the project are a commercial site for community serving retail businesses; 31 acres of parks, open space and trails; a fire-station site; and new roads and improvements to existing transportation infrastructure.
Parks, Open Space & Trails
Besides the 23 acres of community parks and neighborhood parks required by the SWDSP, Homestead provides an additional 1.9 acres of pocket parks, 4.5 acres of linear parks, and a 1.5-acre private amenity area within the active adult community.
Site work for Homestead's first phase – which includes grading, utility installation and road construction – is scheduled to conclude in early 2020. We are sensitive about the impacts this work could have on our neighbors and are working closely with the City of Dixon to reduce inconveniences as much as possible, and to keep residents informed as this work progresses.
Phase 1 Home Construction
Initial home construction will occur in the project’s first phase -- east and west sides of Pitt School Road and south of Hillview Drive -- and currently is anticipated to begin in the spring 2020. Build out of the entire Homestead project will likely take several years, with specific timing determined by market conditions and the City’s Measure B, which limits the number of homes that can be built annually.
