WALNUT CREEK HABITAT & OPEN SPACE PROJECT
The Walnut Creek Habitat & Open Space Project encompasses a total of 60.9 acres, a combination of 6.9 acres held by the City of San Dimas adjacent to the existing Loma Vista Park, and the WCA’s 54 acres. Slated to be developed as a high density single-family residential subdivision, the site was acquired in Fall of 2008 from a willing seller to be established as public open space, which will include recreational amenities. At acquisition, the site was divided into the current WCA and City ownership. The two holdings are seen as integral to each other in the planning, development, and long-term management of the site, and the City and WCA are therefore committed to developing this project in close partnership within one another.
The conceptual master plan for the Walnut Creek Habitat Open Space Property has been completed. The plan, developed through stakeholder collaboration, reflects both the needs of the community and the agencies involved. The WCA and the City of San Dimas engaged the community and other stakeholders through interviews and community meetings. The design team used the feedback gathered to create three conceptual plan alternatives for the project site, evolving it into a single concept plan.
As part of the planning process, a site assessment report was first prepared for the property and is available here:
