In keeping with the Rancho La Habra vision of being a good neighbor and being a partner with the City of La Habra, the community’s plan would incorporate these benefits:
Rancho La Habra will help the City meet, and even exceed, its goal for public parks by providing approximately 25 acres of new public parks and open space. This includes:
Upon plan approval, Lennar has offered to improve Westridge Golf Club’s parking lot and surrounding open space and donate the clubhouse to the City at no cost. The clubhouse could provide an ideal venue for meetings, weddings, public concerts, outdoor movies and other great ways for families to get together with friends and create memories for a lifetime.
Today, only those who pay to golf can enjoy the Westridge Golf Course’s open space. With Rancho La Habra, everyone can. Additionally, Rancho La Habra will save an estimated 31.3 million gallons of water a year over the thirsty greens. That will help the City meet its water conservation goals, and free up drinking water for use elsewhere in the City.
Addressing Community Concerns
Lennar and Rancho La Habra has been working with the community to ensure concerns are addressed. These include:
How to bring these benefits to La Habra:
Rancho La Habra is currently in the review stages. Very shortly, the plan will be before La Habra’s Planning Commission and City Council for approval. It is vitally important that the City hear from supporters of the plan to ensure that Lennar is able to bring new homes and open space to La Habra.

RE: Support for Rancho La Habra
Dear Mr. Ho,
I am writing to express my support for Lennar’s proposed new community of Rancho La Habra, the certification by the City of La Habra of its Environmental Impact Report, and expeditious approval.
Rancho La Habra’s proposal represents an intelligent reuse of the property. I see great community benefit in the trails, parks, open space and community center that all La Habra residents will be able to use.
It is not environmentally friendly to use 90 million gallons of water a year to irrigate fairways and greens. Rancho La Habra’s lower water use will help to conserve water, and the community will help to address the region’s serious housing shortage by providing new homes in a variety of sizes and prices near large employment centers, shopping and entertainment.
The Project EIR presents a thorough analysis of potential impacts and provides a lengthy list of mitigation measures designed to reduce or eliminate those impacts wherever feasible. I urge the Planning Commission and the City Council to certify the EIR with these mitigation measures, so Rancho La Habra can move forward.
