THE MASTER PLAN FOR SAGE RANCH
The Master Plan for Sage Ranch is consistent with numerous new planned communities throughout California with an orientation toward smaller lots, less maintenance, walkable communities and access to nearby parks and community amenities. New Urbanist planning and Traditional Neighborhood Design provide the over-riding context for the community development. Realizing that there is a greater orientation to open space in a small-town setting; the 7.2 Home/Acre Gross density is actually lower than most of the new planned communities that are planned throughout California.
THE REGION OF TEHACHAPI
The region of Tehachapi is well known for its community activities and strong civic pride. Locals love the family and social opportunities that are prevalent there. It seems every weekend has something happening whether it is the rodeo, a cycle or running event, famers markets, shopping events, high school football, and the many other numerous civic and charity events.
The natural beauty of this Mountain Town and surroundings provide so many opportunities for hiking, horse-riding or just enjoying the scenery. The holidays are also highly celebrated with festivities and opportunities to express the local pride in community and country. Tehachapi is a special place, where new home buyers can take advantage of the multitude of activities offered and enjoy a mountain lifestyle that most people can only dream of.
The Market Orientation provided the planning for 995 total dwelling units at an overall gross density of 7.2Homes/Acre. Eight different housing prototypes ranging from 5,500 SF Single Family lots with 2,600 SF Homes to Single Story Attached Homes at 950 SF deﬁne the for-sale market. Apartments constructed at a condominium speciﬁcation are also included with a range of 750-1,200 SF. There is a diversity of housing options within the community that appeal to a large demographic and wide variety of income buyers. Current Market speculation is that about 20% of the buyers will be local homeowners, with the 80% balance anticipated for out of town buyers.
The parks and community buildings will be constructed by the master developer. Builder responsibility is to tie into edge conditions where applies. The apartment amenities and clubhouse are requirements of the apartment builder.
Parks and Community Amenities will be a strong part of the community. A hierarchy of community, neighborhood and pocket parks is proposed. The Central Park at an approximate 4 acre size will provide the heart of the community and is planned to provide numerous active and passive park amenities. An iconic community building is proposed to allow gathering functions with kitchen, meeting room and bathrooms.
