Balancing housing, environment, and community priorities
The Rancho del Prado Specific Plan describes a 203-acre master-planned residential community named Rancho del Prado to be developed in the rolling hills and ridgelines adjacent to Reche Canyon Road in the City of Colton. The project will facilitate necessary improvements for the existing communities while creating a new enclave of walkable, community living.
The plan would allow for a maximum of 350 single-family detached homes, clustered in two distinct neighborhood areas and connected by a road that connects Prado Lane on the north with Crystal Ridge Lane on the south. A homeowner’s association will be created to maintain common areas and enforce neighborhood covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs).
The 203-acre project area will include more than three miles of recreational trails, 8.3 acres of open space parks, and 87 acres of conserved open space. If the plan is approved, the Specific Plan applicant would also dedicate an additional 227 acres of natural open space to the immediate northeast, conserved in perpetuity to protect ridgelines. Taken together, the project and additional conservation area comprises 322 acres of parks, trails, and open space—representing approximately 75% of the overall 430 acre land area.
