Located in the city of Camarillo, CA, Catalina Heights features 315 new homes with a mix of three- and four- bedroom floor plans and a 6,500 SF LEED® Silver community center. The community center is located within a central park and includes swimming and wading pools, tot lots, barbecues, a meeting room, video arcade, fitness center, leasing office, and accommodates an existing youth center. Scattered tot lots and green space provide additional outdoor recreation areas for the military families to enjoy. Catalina Heights also features more than 100 fruit trees and numerous vegetable planters arranged in gardens for its military residents. Known as “Victory Gardens,” the fruits and vegetables grown on site allow families to raise their own food, gain more control over their food source and quality, and reduce transportation costs and impacts associated with off-site sources.
Catalina Heights boasts many green building features, including improved storm water management, a grove of fruit and nut trees, Energy Star® compliant homes constructed with low-VOC paint and ECO-batt insulation, and a commitment to recycling over 95 percent of debris throughout construction. The LEED® Silver 6,500-square-foot clubhouse features an outdoor swimming pool and central park. The project has been recognized by Ventura County with multiple awards for its sustainable development and commitment to energy conservation and environmental initiatives.
