Q. Why couldn't we keep the golf course?
A. The course owners hired the National Golf Foundation (NGF) to do a study on the feasibility of keeping a golf course. The NGF’s report showed that Riverside County has lower than national average on rounds played and golf demand. There are 11 courses in a 10-mile radius of the former Mountain View Golf Course, and 24 in a 15’-mile radius. The costs to operate an executive course (9 holes) are comparable to PGA sanctioned course and revenues would not sustain that model. To view highlights of the report, please click here.
Q. I live on the golf course. Will my views be affected?
A. We have designed a site plan and format with line-of-sight in mind. Based on community feedback all homes are now single story. The natural topography of the valley combined with strategic placement of homes and single-story layouts will maintain the aesthetic beauty of the landscape and mountain views.
Q. Will the existing residents pay to use the amenities that you're proposing?
A. No! New homes sales will pay for the amenities. The Trails at Corona will have a Homeowners Association that will collect fees only from the new homeowners to maintain the new landscaping, parks and other trails.
Q. We appreciate keeping lots of open space. Can the trees be kept as well?
A. Each tree, especially the large palms, will be inspected and trees that can be preserved will be boxed and reused throughout the open spaces planned for the neighborhood. In addition, our plans only add 3.5 units per acre – allowing for plenty of open space.
Q. Won't new homes add to the traffic?
A. All of the new homes will be restricted to qualifying adults who are 60+ years in age - known as an Active Adult Community – Active Adults still drive but not during as often during the commute peak hours.
Q. Will I be forced to go on sewer line when the new houses add sewer hook ups?
A. No! A separate sewer line will be added for the new houses. Existing houses will not be required to connect to the system.
Q. Won't new homes bring in more students to our schools?
A. No! 100% of homes will be qualifying age-restricted Active Adult Community homes which will lead to little-to-no addition of any school-aged children in the neighborhood.
Q. Will you include parks that all residents can use?
A. Yes! Open space will be preserved as parks and walking trails for all the neighbors to use. The new homes will have a Homeowners Association that will pay for the cost to maintain these public areas.
Q. Some of the new project will be on land in the City limits. Will the existing County residents be forced to annex to the City?
A. No. The majority of the project is on land in the unincorporated part of the County with a smaller section in the city of Corona. The project is not related to annexation.
Q. What improvements have been made to the plans?
A. We have listened to the concerns of the current residents and have made changes to improve the project. Our original plans in 2015 included 441 homes with a portion of those being high density townhomes which led to concerns regarding an increased impact to traffic. The original designs also included two story homes but due to concerns from our neighbors we have designed all homes to be single story. Since then, we have improved the plans to be 365 single family homes with a 100% qualifying age requirement of age 60+, reducing traffic by 64% from our original plans. We have also included additional walking trails, open space, and other public amenities.
