61 Site planning decision-making…

62 Optimal Development Envelope Site planning decision-making…

63 Village Development Envelope: 300 acres Community Plan Overview…

64 The development program… Residential program: 675 market rate homes - single family detached, compounds, courtyard, lofts, live-work, cottages,town homes, condos 290 affordable homes - attached and detached single family (50% CLT units)

66 Organizing Principles…

67 Knolls and ridge lines Neighborhoods organized around landforms and view corridors…

68 Knolls and ridge lines Neighborhoods organized around landforms and view corridors… Views to surrounding mountains and grasslands

69 Connectivity and accessibility… Neighborhood and regional trails/bikeways Access to transit/trolley Regional highway connections

70 Vibrant community core… Village Residential zone: A diverse mix of educational, commercial, civic, and intensive residential land uses (25 du/ac)

71 Places of engagement and belonging… Gathering spaces: performance spaces, outdoor markets, play spaces

72 Places of engagement and belonging… Gathering spaces: performance spaces, outdoor markets, play spaces Courts, parks, plazas and alamedas

73 Reverence and celebration… Sacred spaces: Chapel, ceremonial and sculpture gardens

74 Reverence and celebration… Sacred spaces: Chapel, ceremonial and sculpture gardens Green cemetery

75 Environmentally responsible design and construction…

76 Environmentally responsible design and construction… Construction materials with high thermal storage and insulation values (windows, building systems) Passive solar neighborhood design Sun shading/roof overhangs Strategic cross ventilation Low “imbedded energy” materials Community power (CSP, wind, biomass) Material recycling

77 Transportation/Accessibility Mixed-use development program Trolley service along existing rail Regional commuter trails/bikeways Vanpools/ride sharing/zip cars

78 Low impact design engineering… 85% wastewater reuse (165 ac/ft) for toilets and outdoor irrigation 500,000+ gal rainwater catchment and aquifer recharge wells Grassland and riparian restoration for storm water Contour-based road design Xeric and shade-bearing landscaping

79 Wild Ambitions…

80 A deep and sustaining conservation ethic …

81 A landscape the grows increasingly rich in its health and diversity …

82 A practice of community development that inspires and challenges …
