Neighbors pack room for GVCA forum on The Farm in Poway

March 3, 2020

Traffic, noise and open space were among the top concerns raised by Powegians at a question-and-answer panel forum on The Farm in Poway on March 1.

The forum was hosted by the Green Valley Civic Association and drew a crowd of at least 100 people. The GVCA stated it has yet to take an official stance on the project.

A presentation on The Farm in Poway was given and developer Kevin McNamara, his team of consultants and City Planner David De Vries answered audience questions about the project. The project will be placed on the November ballot for approval.

The Farm in Poway would develop the currently vacant and overgrown StoneRidge Country Club property into a new neighborhood featuring 160 homes on 117.2 acres. The neighborhood would also include publicly-available amenities like a butterfly garden and education center, a space for events, a beer and wine garden, a café, a grass amphitheater, a dog park, a fitness club with tennis courts, pickleball courts and a pool and three public trails. While some of the amenities would be privately owned and require membership or a fee to use, many others would be free and open to the public.
