Amoruso Ranch creates a livable community where housing, recreation, education, retail, and employment opportunities are integrated into an urban village. This village is envisioned as a contemporary version of a small walkable town. Key components include pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly streets, open space connections, and vistas to important community focal points. Integrating land uses that give the feeling of “development over time,” public spaces such as plazas, urban parks, linear parks, and pedestrian linkages are the primary form-giving features that create the framework and personality of the walkable urban village. 160 acres have been dedicated to parks and open space; 135 of which have been set aside as open space preserve.
A mix of residential housing from low to high densities will provide housing diversity and choice. Community supporting institutional and municipal uses including a 9.6-acre elementary school and three-acre fire station as well as three commercial parcels totaling 51 acres, will create an integrated healthy mix of uses that promote community and sense of gathering.
