Fair Oaks, California — 4 September 2018 — After the city’s planning commission voted 5-1 to recommend the go ahead, Mitchell Farms was unanimously approved by the City of Citrus Heights on August 23rd.

Located off Greenback Lane and Sunrise Boulevard in Citrus Heights, Mitchell Farms will be a remarkable lifestyle community. The project is carefully designed and priced to meet the needs of first time and move up buyers. Features will include luxury residences in a wide variety of styles, along with open space, trails and outdoor amenities.

Mitchell Farms is comprised of approximately 56 acres and is planned for 261 single family residences. The project is contiguous to existing residential development and is considered one of the few remaining infill residential opportunities in Citrus Heights. Lot sizes will range from 4,000 to 16,000 sq. ft. This long planned development will offer housing opportunities and amenities not currently available in Citrus Heights.

Mitchell Farms will feature ample open space, parks and trails. This new community will be a short distance to grocery and specialty retail stores,  a 5- minute drive to Hwy 80 and is planned with a focus on water conservation and energy efficiency.

The proposed project will include a mix of residential uses located on approximately 32 acres and will accommodate approximately 663 residents. It will 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.

According to Kevin Webb, Northern California division president for Watt Communities, construction will likely begin in spring of 2019 and homes would be completed about 12 months later.
