LANCASTER, Calif. — More than 750 new homes are coming to Lancaster after the city council unanimously approved the plan on 237 acres of old farmland last week.
- "The project that they approved is for 750 lots for single-family residences. They also have within the proposed development two parks, streets that are going to be private streets, and they have walking trails and other amenities that they believe are going to appeal to buyers,” said Brian Ludicke, planning director, City of Lancaster.
- City officials believe this new development will help during the state's housing shortage. Named Avanti North, the community will complement a larger development named Avanti South which has not yet been voted on by the council.
