  • Respect and integrate neighborhood development with the existing terrain, arroyos, vegetation, trails, and walking paths.
  • Create a unique neighborhood/center that advances the City’s vision to be an inclusive community, recognized for its cultural diversity, enchanting natural amenities , and vibrant quality of life.
