The proposed 2,500 home development near the San Joaquin River and Lost Lake Park is an ideal place for senior citizens at least to Fresno County Supervisors.
" If you're building a senior citizens area you're not talking about people that run up and down streets all the time," County Supervisor Phil Larson said.
But there are some planning differences between the city and the county.
The San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust is putting their two cents in as well.
They believe this housing development would have a large effect on the Lost Lake Park and the river.
They want the county to reconsider and include impact fees from the developer.
" It's going to lead to further deterioration of this park and cause need for more maintenance for this park," Sarah Parks, a local conservationist said.
Fresno County Supervisor Phil Larson says not only will this housing development benefit the baby boomer population, the 250,000 square feet of retail space will boost our local economy.
" If you build for 2,500 people, you're going to build a lot of homes, plus retail, and that will create jobs," Larson said.
The developers plan to build a $10 million dollar waste water treatment plant near the San Joaquin River and that's causing some heated discussions also.
" Whenever there's a huge flood, the sewage treatment plant goes into the river, so the health of our community will be impacted," Parks said.
