Mitchell Farms Subdivision

About the Project

In August 2018, the City Council approved an application for a General Plan Amendment, Rezone, Tentative Subdivision Map, Design Review Permit, and Tree Permit for the development known as Mitchell Farms on the Sunrise Golf Course site (7925 Arcadia Drive).

Project Description

The proposed project includes a mix of residential uses with a total of 260 single-family residential dwelling units located on approximately 32 acres with an average density of 8.1 dwelling units per acre and would accommodate approximately 663 residents. The project would consist of five villages along the periphery of the site with a mix of three different housing types: 110 paseo units (alley-loaded single-family units), 72 patio units (groups of 2 to 8 single-family units accessed from a central alley), and 78 traditional housing units. The remaining 23 acres in the central portion of the site, including the creek corridor, would be devoted to recreational areas and open space uses including a trail system. The proposed site plan (PDF) for the project is available.
