The Winters City Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2021-40 at the July 6 meeting approving a professional services agreement with Raney Planning & Management, Inc. to conduct an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Farmstead Subdivision.

The council authorized City Manager Kathleen Salguero Trepa to execute the contract on behalf of the city in the amount of $126,720.

The Farmstead Subdivision is a 62-acre area located along the north side of Grant Avenue, directly across from the end of E. Main Street.

The Farmstead Subdivision foresees development of 208 single-family residences, 56 multi-family apartments, 144,700 square feet of commercial uses across seven lots, one acre of open space and a 5.4-acre park with picnic areas and open play lawn area.

A community workshop was scheduled via Zoom for Tuesday, July 13 at 6 p.m., (after the Express went to press), for a community presentation by developer Mark Skreden and his team on the proposed Farmstead subdivision.

Trepa said a recording of the presentation and community Q&A workshop will be posted to the city’s website and available for public viewing on July 14.
