Galt Planning Commissioners will hear a presentation tomorrow night, Thursday, June 25 at 6 p.m., about the Fairway Oaks and county island annexation project, just one of many public meetings that have and will take place regarding the plan. The project is also in its California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) public review period, which ends June 29.

Being developed by The Arcadia Companies, the Fairway Oaks Subdivision totals just over 50.5 acres and will include 173 lots for single family homes, with 12.5 acres dedicated to open space along the Dry Creek corridor. The project is located just west of Highway 99, between Glendale Avenue and Ranch Road.

The project needs additional access points, and is seeking to annex in an adjoining “county island” which has a road, when improved, that can be used for access, connecting the project to South Lincoln Way to the west.

The county island encompasses nine homes that share Cornell Road, a street maintained by the county. The homes in the area are not part of the city water and sewer programs, having wells and septic systems instead. Those residents will not be required to hook up to the city systems.

Although not technically within city limits, when emergencies occur, Galt police officers respond, as they are the closest law enforcement.

The annexation will involve land along South Lincoln Way, including five additional homes and the Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall.

The meeting will be held via teleconference. Those wishing to attend can do so by joining the electronic meeting at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82989294332 (Webinar ID: 829 8929 4332#) or by calling (669) 900-9128 and enter Webinar ID: 829 8929 4332# to listen to the meeting.
