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. Taylor Builders is responsible for overall Homestead implementation.
Homestead is 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.
Homes will be constructed by a variety of nationally and regionally well-known builders. Initial home construction will occur in the project’s first phase on the east and west sides of Pitt School Road and south of Hillview Drive. Buildout 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.
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.
