Manteca’s third age-restricted community with traditional free-standing single family homes will include a 9,000-square-foot clubhouse and an expanded central park.

Trumark Homes will start building the 492-home TruLiving at Manteca be the end of this year along East Louise Avenue just west of Cottage Way.

It will join Camellia Gardens off of Yosemite Avenue east of the Highway 99 freeway and the recently completed 1,406-home Del Webb at Woodbridge as age-restricted neighborhoods in Manteca. TruLiving is designed for those 55 years and older.

The developer is requesting an adjustment to the planned development approved several years ago, It is being considered by the Manteca Planning Commission when they meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Manteca Civic Center, 1001 W. Center Street.

The adjustments are to the clubhouse in the central park.

Originally when Trumark was seeking approval for a standard neighborhood that was not age-restricted they asked for and received permission to build a 4,000-square-foot clubhouse. They now want to increase the clubhouse to over 9,000 square feet that Trumark Director of Architecture Garrett Hinds indicates will serve “as the heartbeat of the community, just as enjoyed at Woodbridge.”

The new plans call for an increased pool and spa deck area, a larger fitness center, and has added bocce ball and pickle ball courts. They are also adding an arcade for visiting grandkids and adults.

Trumark plans to build all single story homes except for one or two floor plans that may have an optional bonus space on a small second floor. All homes will have the primary bedroom on the first floor.

With the switch to an age-restricted neighborhood, they are seeking modifications to previously approved setbacks and lot coverages.

Their goal is to “provide the best single-living floor plans without adjusting lot sizes.”

Rear setbacks for one-story homes would be a minimum of seven feet with an average of 10 feet. For those homes that may have a bonus room on a small second floor the rear yard setback would be a minimum of 10 feet with an average of 15 feet. That will allow the creation of more useable L-shaped rear yard space shared by the bedroom and living room.

Floor plans would range from 1,502 to 2,984 square feet.  The larger number is on those plans with an optional second floor that will include a bedroom and a bathroom. That compares to 1,329 to 2,600 square feet at Del Webb.

TruLiving will also be a gated community like Camellia Gardens and unlike Del Webb.

The Trumark project also includes building a roundabout with two lanes of traffic in each direction on Louise Avenue where it intersects with Felice Way.
