Dreamland Villa Golf Course Proposed Development

William Lyon Homes is interested in building a development on the 30 acre golf course property. They are proposing 240 single family detached courtyard homes utilizing the RSL PUD (Planned Unit Development) zoning district. The golf course is not owned by the Dreamland Villa Community Club.

A revised package will be submitted to the City after that.
