Larger club­house for TruLiv­ing

3rd age-re­stricted neigh­bor­hood breaks ground this year

Manteca Bulletin - - Front Page - By DEN­NIS WY­ATT

Man­teca’s third age-re­stricted com­mu­nity with tra­di­tional free­stand­ing sin­gle fam­ily homes will in­clude a 9,000-square-foot club­house and an ex­panded cen­tral park.

Tru­mark Homes will start build­ing the 492-home TruLiv­ing at Man­teca be the end of this year along East Louise Av­enue just west of

Cot­tage Way.

It will join Camel­lia Gar­dens off of Yosemite Av­enue east of the High­way 99 free­way and the re­cently com­pleted 1,406-home Del Webb at Wood­bridge as ager­e­stricted neigh­bor­hoods in Man­teca. TruLiv­ing is de­signed for those 55 years and older.

The de­vel­oper is re­quest­ing an ad­just­ment to the planned de­vel­op­ment ap­proved sev­eral years ago, It is be­ing con­sid­ered by the Man­teca Plan­ning Com­mis­sion when they meet Tues­day at 7 p.m. at the Man­teca Civic Cen­ter, 1001 W. Cen­ter Street.

The ad­just­ments are to the club­house in the cen­tral park.

Orig­i­nally when Tru­mark was seek­ing ap­proval for a standard neigh­bor­hood that was not ager­e­stricted they asked for and re­ceived per­mis­sion to build a 4,000-square-foot club­house. They now want to in­crease the club­house to over 9,000 square feet that Tru­mark Di­rec­tor of Ar­chi­tec­ture Gar­rett Hinds in­di­cates will serve “as the heartbeat of the com­mu­nity, just as en­joyed at Wood­bridge.”

The new plans call for an in­creased pool and spa deck area, a larger fit­ness cen­ter, and has added bocce ball and pickle ball courts. They are also adding an ar­cade for vis­it­ing grand­kids and adults.

Tru­mark plans to build all sin- gle story homes ex­cept for one or two floor plans that may have an op­tional bonus space on a small sec­ond floor. All homes will have the pri­mary bed­room on the first floor.

With the switch to an ager­e­stricted neigh­bor­hood, they are seek­ing mod­i­fi­ca­tions to pre­vi­ously ap­proved set­backs and lot cov­er­ages.

Their goal is to “pro­vide the best sin­gle-liv­ing floor plans with­out ad­just­ing lot sizes.”

Rear set­backs for one-story homes would be a min­i­mum of seven feet with an av­er­age of 10 feet. For those homes that may have a bonus room on a small sec­ond floor the rear yard set­back would be a min­i­mum of 10 feet with an av­er­age of 15 feet. That will al­low the cre­ation of more use­able L-shaped rear yard space shared by the bed­room and liv­ing room.

Floor plans would range from 1,502 to 2,984 square feet. The larger num­ber is on those plans with an op­tional sec­ond floor that will in­clude a bed­room and a bath­room. That com­pares to 1,329 to 2,600 square feet at Del Webb.

TruLiv­ing will also be a gated com­mu­nity like Camel­lia Gar­dens and un­like Del Webb.

The Tru­mark project also in­cludes build­ing a round­about with two lanes of traf­fic in each di­rec­tion on Louise Av­enue where it in­ter­sects with Felice Way.
