The Meadowood site plan has been designed to take full advantage of existing natural open space and agricultural elements, so the master-planned community will fit in well with the surrounding area. Also, adjacent habitat and wildlife corridors will be protected.
In total, almost half of the 389.5-acre project site will be preserved as permanent open space, including natural open space and existing citrus and avocado groves that will serve as a transition between natural open space and homes.
The project's open space areas will include nearly six miles of multi-use trails and walkways, a neighborhood park and pocket parks that will be dispersed through the community.
Meadowood also is planned with a 12.7-acre elementary school site.
Pardee Homes proposes to build 844 homes within the Meadowood project area, in a range of styles to provide options to homebuyers. The site plan includes single family, multi-family detached and multi-family attached homes. This variety of housing types will help ease the serious housing shortage in San Diego County.
Meadowood's site plan establishes a sense of place for the community, while emphasizing open space, habitat preservation and trail access. The plan also provides educational and recreational opportunities for residents.
Color schemes and building materials will be selected to blend in with the surrounding area, and the project's traffic circulation network and mitigation measures will reduce or eliminate potential impacts on existing roadways.
The aim of the site plan is to create a blueprint for a master-planned community that is sensitive to the natural environment, conserves resources and provides superior amenities and quality of life to its residents.
