Murio Farms is active again

A neighborhood meeting will be held on October 12 at 6:00 at Desert Sage Elementary School, 9325 Mossywood Drive.

Murio farms is a planned development that was announced in April, 2021 with a neighborhood meeting in June 2021. The project covers 380 acres between Cole Ave and Maple Grove south of Lake Hazel. 3400 units are planned.

The developer is the Land Group, the current property is owned by the Murgoitio family.

Details can be found at car21-00022


The new neighborhood meeting notice does not (directly) include facts about the development such as size and number and type of units. Nor does it reference the city planning page or id (car21-00022). Information on the city page and the Land Group web site has not been updated since summer of 2021. However the neighborhood meeting notice has the same map used in 2021, so I am confident that my “old facts” are still accurate.

The city requires a new development to send notice to people who live within 300 feet of the property (plus one, me, the South Cole neighborhood association contact). Since most of the area is open farmland, very few people are notified by this requirement.

The development will affect everyone who lives near, or uses, S Cole or S Maple Grove. In 2021 we had a huge turnout thanks to posts like this and people like you passing the message on to friends. The Land Group was not happy with the large turn out and all the questions asked by people beyond the 300 ft area. Don’t let then turn you away, these meetings are open to all interested parties, not just those with a mail invite. Please attend, ask your questions, and get your thoughts (positive and negative) on the record .

Unspecified Development at 6310 S Orchard

Ball Ventures Ahlquist is hosting a neighborhood meeting tomorrow, August 10, at 6:00pm at 6310 S Orchard, corner of Lake Hazel and Orchard.

They want the city to annex and rezone the property for a planned development. The notice only says “planned development”. It does not provide any details about what is planned. I have reached out to the developer for details. If I hear back I will post it here.

Normally a developer provides the city with a list of who receives notice of the neighborhood meeting. As this development is in the middle of nothing, I suspect no one lives within the required notification radius.

New subdivision at 7735 Victory

A neighborhood meeting is planned on the property, outside, on Thursday April 28 at 6:00pm.

The developer is Gem State Planning, LLC

I have a blurry copy of the plans, it appears to be 37 homes. I assume they are all intended for owner occupation. I have sent the developer an email requesting more information. I will update this report when I have more details.

(8/26) I heard back from the developer. The total acreage is 7.63 acres. 37 buildable lots, average lot size 5624 sf. All single family detached homes, to be sold at market prices.

3750 Maple Grove, 43 new homes

Hayden Homes is looking to build 43 homes at 3750 Maple Grove. The property is on the west end of Murgoitio Park, adjacent to the church.

The project will include annexation and rezone.

The developer is hosting a neighborhood meeting on Thursday, December 16, 6:00 pm on the property. Contact Tim Mokwa, tmokwa@hayden-homes.com with questions.

The information I have does not include lot size or home size. From the dimensionless “site-plan” they appear to be very small, closely packed lots.

No phone number was provided for the listed contact. Also no local Hayden office number was provided. Hayden Homes is based in Oregon, the Oregon number is 800-923-6607
