A 100 unit multifamily apartment complex was included in the original plans for the neighborhood to provide for affordable housing. Most of the homes have been built on the flatter benches while the steeper slopes of the mountain have been retained for the permanent green spaces. Tree cutting is limited and restricted in the neighborhood in order to maintain the tree covered hillsides and screen the housing development from surrounding areas - in addition to maintaining the integrity and strength of the soil on the mountain side.
