Evergreen Sierra East, Cresleigh Homes and USA Properties are pleased to introduce College Park, a mixed-use development project comprised of two sites – College Park North located off Sierra College Blvd, and College Park South, located near El Don Drive and Rocklin Road.
Both sites will serve a variety of housing needs within the City of Rocklin, providing direct vehicular and pedestrian access to Sierra College. Their distinctive styles will resonate throughout the college district, represented by contemporary architecture, new parks and trails, and the use of common landscaping, signage and lighting.
As the project advances through the planning process, the website will be updated to reflect changes in the project description and timetable. To view the project’s application, architectural and landscaping plans, and more, see the downloads at the bottom of this page.
Residential villages and a commercial area will offer new opportunities to the community. Each residential village within the site will have distinctive architecture and aesthetics that complement the wider community. A winding trail system will connect homes, open space areas and a community park. The North Village will include tri-level townhomes, small family homes, a four-story condominium and detached single family homes flanking the eastern perimeter of the community. The mixed-use area will allow opportunity to provide additional housing, goods and services to the larger neighborhood.
25 single family homes will offer a unique living environment with homes nestled in an area where approximately 47% of land will be retained in open space. Homeowners and neighbors will have access to a new improved trail along the existing riparian area and Monte Verde Park. Additionally, the acreage that currently serves as a college offsite parking lot, on the corner of El Don Drive and Rocklin Road, will, over time, be converted to uses that complement the main college campus which could include, institutional, office, or senior uses. The Northeastern portion of the site will be developed by USA Properties as a senior affordable multi-family project.
Based on neighbor and community input, the number of single-family homes to be located in the South Village (Site C-1/near Monte Verde Park) was reduced from 37 to 25 homes.
The project will include public parks, open space and trail improvements that will be accessible to the project’s surrounding neighborhoods.
College Park will embody the identity of the College District, and be defined by the unique sense of place provided by the preserved wetlands, creek corridors and oak groves. The North Village surrounds a 15.5-acre complex of recreation and natural areas, an open space preserve connected by trails to parks, and a clubhouse as the social center of the neighborhood. The South, with office and/or institutional buildings to the north, and a small neighborhood to the south, is bisected by a 16.8-acre creek corridor, with trails connecting visitors and residents to the 1.2-acre Monte Verde Park.
The project is at the beginning of a planning process that could take 9-12 months. Project impact analysis is required, including environmental review and traffic analysis. Once the City of Rocklin releases its independent analysis, it will be posted online.
The following application timetable is subject to delays. For current status, please request email project updates.
