700 plus homes proposed south of Lovelace Road in North Manteca

Manteca’s next big urbanization push will be to the north.

Local home builders headed by Bill Filios and Toni Raymus are within six months of submitting plans to the City of Manteca to annex land north of Del Webb at Woodbridge to Lovelace Road. The proposed subdivision would be built along Lovelace Road between Airport Way and Union Road. It also includes a site for a possible Manteca Unified School District elementary school.

The land between Del Webb and the proposed new neighborhood would not be developed at this time.

At one point Pulte Homes was in discussion with the developers to possibly expand the Del Webb community but that proposal did not pan out. 

The new neighborhood would be located directly across from the 17-acre Lovelace Transfer Station where solid waste is taken, sorted, and shipped out to either be landfilled or recycled. Three existing homes on the south side of Lovelace west of Union Road would remain in place.

Filios shared the proposal with the City Council prior to submitting it so they would be aware of the plans prior to providing staff with direction on envisioned land use in the area that will be vetted in an upcoming environmental review process for the city’s general plan update. The general plan serves as the city’s blueprint for growth and is mandated by state law.

The council tweaked the recommended land use to remove envisioned commercial on the southwest corner of Union Road and Lovelace Road to accommodate the housing project. They directed staff to include commercial instead on the northeast and northwest corners of the Lovelace/Union intersection. 

The new neighborhood would have a mixture of single family housing sizes including smaller lots. 

The preferred land use map the City Council directed staff to work with calls for primarily single family housing between Airport Way and the Frontage Road along Highway 99  from Lathrop Road north to an envisioned eastern extension of Roth Road.
