Estates at Ross Ranch

Project Description: The Estates at Ross Ranch is a 30-lot subdivision project located at 1295 Jensen Lane, Assessor’s Parcel Number 162-020-004.  The project would subdivide the 17.18-acre mostly vacant parcel into 30 lots and reduce the agricultural buffer adjacent to the east and south property lines to 100-feet from 200-feet. The project also includes the extension of Prince George Way to the east through the project site to connect to a new north-south segment of Jensen Lane. A new north-south street, Portland Way, would be constructed in the center of the site to provide access to most of the new lots and would provide a connection to Vinecrest Road and the extension of Prince George Way. Of the 30 lots that would be created, only 26 lots would be buildable (lots 1-12 and 17-30) until such time as the agricultural buffer required along the south property line is no longer required.
