Selleck Properties of Westlake Village, Calif. presented its new project plan to the Simi Valley City Council in June 2002, and took the first step in a long but successful venture demonstrating a thoughtful balance of commerce, community and stewardship of the areas surroundings.
The southern California
developers envisioned project a 35-acre phased site including commercial
space, 167 affordable apartments for seniors and 200 town homes promised
an economic boost to the community, both during and after construction, as well
as much needed new housing. For Selleck Properties, the fact that potential
runoff from the proposed project would eventually drain into these waterways
meant it needed to select a treatment system that would effectively reduce pollutants
to mandated levels. This process entailed navigating a barrage of city, county
and state regulations and restrictions.
