OPEN SPACE & PUBLIC LANDSCAPES
Stonegate Village Metropolitan District
The Stonegate Village Metropolitan District community is characterized by a traditional suburban approach to planning, design and layout of landscape amenities. The landscape components can be characterized by:
Large Turf Areas
Ample Open Space
Flower Beds and Gardens
Greenbelts and Greenways
The most recent landscape plan and designs are based on the 2010 Landscape Master Plan (August 2010), and the overall landscape plan incorporates modern water-wise sensibility and conservation planning. < Click Here > for more information on the 2010 Landscape Master Plan.
As the District moves into the future, it will continue to identify more environmentally sustainable landscape treatments throughout the District's community parks, greenbelts, neighborhood parks, and common areas, to enhance the community character, as well as save water, reduce overall maintenance requirements and lower operating costs.
