According to an article by InnerCircle Corona, the proposed West Corona community Sierra Bella is now moving forward after being put on hold since the initial Specific Plan for the project was approved back in 2005. The Sierra Bella Specific Plan has gone back to Planning & Housing Commission and to the Corona City Council this April and has completed the entitlement process. The project will now move into plan check.
“Forestar’s development shows renewed confidence in the Corona marketplace” said Daniel Rittatore, economic developer for the City of Corona "
"A brand new housing development project is under way in Corona for the first time in more than five years showing huge steps forward in our local economy."The Project is looking to bring a new “hillside village of 249 homes clustered along the lower ridgelines, with the mountain peaks to the south providing a natural backdrop,” according to the City of Corona’s Sierra Bella Specific Plan’s Project Overview.
"Design plans for the project have yet to be submitted or approved but projections say structures should be under way in 2015 according to City of Corona’s Senior Planner Jason Moquin."
