Tuesday’s Dixon Planning Commission meeting will focus exclusively on one of the largest projects currently being developed in town: the Homestead development.
Specifically, the commission will vote to consider approval of designs for model homes in four of Homestead’s villages.
The Homestead project is a multi-phase development project in southwest Dixon south of West A Street by Pitt School Road. The development would include 1,365 single and multi-family units, a 32-acre commercial space and a 41-acre employment center. The development is part of the Southwest Dixon Specific Plan, which was approved by the City Council in 2004.
The latest planning application, submitted by Ethan Meltzer of project developer Taylor Builders, includes consideration of three standard model homes with four style variations and four color options per style for the 45-foot wide lots in the project area, according to a staff report by Associate Planner Scott Greeley. The homes are located in villages 6, 7, 9 and 10 of the second phase of the project.
The lots within the two-part second phase — designated as 2A and 2B — are part of the development’s “active living phase,” so the lots are smaller than other villages — generally between 45 and 55 feet –, Greeley wrote. Active living households are those where the occupants are physically active.
“The reason for the smaller lots is that these four villages were identified to host the active living component of Homestead, with smaller single story homes and small yards that are typical for active living households,” he wrote.
