Menifee Gardens is a 35 acre parcel located on Grand and Briggs Road in the unincorporated area of Menifee. The parcel is part of the Winchester Hills Specific Plan. The project entails a Specific Plan Amendment to change the land use from industrial to small lot single family residential.
Purchased in 2012, the property is undergoing clean up and restoration from its previous use as a commercial fish farm operated by Dole Foods. The property lies in the path of growth and is adjacent to a recently successful single family home development built by Standard Pacific Homes.
Land planning and environmental studies will commence in the first quarter of 2015. Preliminary land plans have yield 150 to 200 home lots that range in size from 4,000 to 5,000 square feet. Initial meetings with the County of Riverside senior planning staff have resulted in support of the zone change and densities.
