A large new subdivision is looking for approval from the Meridian City Council.
Developers want to bring Skybreak Neighborhood, which is described as a “golf course community” with various amenities for “active adult living,” to 3487 E Alder Hoff Ln. and 7020 S. Eagle Rd. in Meridian.
Skybreak Neighborhood would include a total of 329 single-family homes. However, 112 of those homes would be within a gated community to create “a more intimate neighborhood setting.”
The gated community and the close proximity to the Boise Ranch Golf Course are geared toward older buyers.
“We have found that there is a demographic of senior home buyers that prefer the security that a gated community can provide,” the application letter said. “The larger view lots located on the ridge will provide opportunities for large custom homes with outstanding views of the Boise Foothills. This would provide “CEO Type” homes that we have heard the city asking for in the Comprehensive Plan hearing over the last year.”
Skybreak would have a variety of different home styles made up of large ‘CEO Housing,’ two-story golf course homes, custom homes, and a mix of single-family homes either in or outside the gated community.
“Skybreak will provide homes that are in very high demand in a very desirable part of southeast Meridian,” the letter said.
Amenities & parking
The 80-acre subdivision would feature several amenities including a neighborhood park, two dog parks, several pathways including one for golf carts, and 15 acres of common area.
“Residents of Skybreak will enjoy a walkable/bikeable community that is within a short drive to shopping, healthcare services, employment opportunities, and regional transportation arteries,” the letter said.
The subdivision would have 334 on-street parking spaces and each house would have a minimum of a two-car garage and driveway with two spaces.
Skybreak Neighborhood will be in front of city council to request annexation on June 29, 2021.
The City of Meridian delayed votes on several annexations this year in light of a property tax bill the legislature passed. The bill will affect how cities pay for growth. Though, Meridian Mayor Robert Simison recently said in his State of the City address that Meridian “should be able to provide our city services as planned.”
