A developer is planning to bring in about 800 homes on 257 acres in the Marion area.

The Marion City Council heard a presentation by Jason Osuna, of Grafted Investments, and Chris Drice, of Cude Engineering, about the new development located on Santa Clara Road just inside the Marion extraterritorial jurisdiction.

Listening to developers requires some insight regarding sub-division proposals. An acre = 43,560 sq. ft. 257 acres = 11.2 million sq ft. 11.2 divided by 800 units allows 14,000 sq. ft per housing unit. That amount includes the lot plus space for streets and other uses. The standard lot size in the US = 9000 sq ft. 60 ft wide by 150 ft. deep, leaving 5000 sq. ft for streets and other purposes not part of the lots themselves.
