MOORPARK : Development Clears Review Hurdle

The Bollinger Development Co. has cleared the second to last hurdle in a process to review the environmental impacts of a proposal to build 215 luxury homes near Grimes Canyon in Moorpark.

Moorpark planning commissioners on Monday said that after several months of public hearings and discussion, the company has adequately addressed all potential environmental impacts of the project.

The Planning Commission also recommended that the Moorpark City Council deem the project’s final environmental impact report complete when it considers the issue Dec. 6.

Called the Moorpark Country Club Estates, the project is planned for 400 acres between Grimes Canyon and Walnut Canyon on the city’s north side. Bollinger wants to move more than 10 million cubic yards of soil to fill the steep and rutted canyons on the property, according to the environmental report.


If the project is approved, the houses will be sold for prices ranging from about $500,000 to $1 million, company officials said. The development will also include two 18-hole golf courses.
