Lagoon Valley is where livability meets sustainability. A new community located conveniently between the Bay Area and Sacramento includes neighborhoods where “live-work-play” opportunities bring balance to life. It’s a sustainable community with a design that prioritizes connections between people and open space; where residents will enjoy the community’s walkability, with recreation, jobs, and housing in proximity, with green building standards that go above and beyond California’s high standards. The community is committed to protecting and preserving land and natural resources. Eighty-five percent of the specific plan is dedicated to open space and parks and recreation — creating an environment where wildlife can thrive.

“We know that creating a conservation community is the right way. However, it is not the easy way, and Lagoon Valley has taken decades to plan,” says Curt Johansen, Development Director, Triad Lagoon Valley, LLC. “Investing in the planet means living on it as lightly as possible. We’ve done that with this dynamic community.”

Lagoon Valley has incorporated these “Small Ways to Save the Planet” in this first-of-its-kind Bay Area community:

Drive Less. Less driving means fewer carbon emissions. One way to reduce driving is to create multi-dimensional communities where living, working, neighborhood shops, and recreational environments are in proximity, pedestrian and biking trips increase, transit is within 10 minutes, and vehicle trips decrease. 

Get Your Power from the Sun. Solar energy, both active and passive, is no longer optional – it is essential to reduce our carbon footprint, reduce impacts to the biosphere, and mitigate climate change. It’s in your power to make a difference. 

Use Reclaimed Water. California’s drought conditions require all of us to conserve and reclaim water resources. We offer homeowners the option to reduce potable water consumption by up to 50% through reclamation of grey water. What a refreshing change. 

Learn from Nature. Communities that combine wetlands preservation and expansive wildlife habitat in their neighborhood planning create positive change. In addition to encouraging the ecological literacy of community residents, they help maintain a balanced ecosystem.
Grow Your Own Food. The community’s organic, community-supported farming teaches children and adults to respect, protect, and care for the land in ways that inspire stewardship, social connection, and wellness, not to mention delicious dishes.

About Lagoon Valley
The Lagoon Valley community in Northern California addresses a housing crunch that has plagued the Bay Area for decades. With the Bay Area as the largest tech market in the United States, San Francisco has a cost-of-living index of 269.3, almost twice as high as Vacaville, California. Lagoon Valley, on the outskirts of Vacaville, which broke ground in June, anticipates its first residents will move in 2023. It is just 53 miles from San Francisco and will provide fourteen neighborhoods with 1,015 homes varying in size and price ranges, including neighborhoods offering affordable housing, as well as age-qualified residences, and estate homes designed to encourage multi-generational living. It is truly a mixed-use development and will include extensive preserved wetland and wildlife habitats, and additional acres of new parkland. 59% of the 2,400-acre specific plan is dedicated open space and 26% of parks and recreation. The neighborhoods are interconnected with trails that offer easy access to adjoining villages, the Town Center, the Community Farm, neighborhood parks, recreational facilities, an 18-hole golf course seeking Audubon certification, and a Community Event Center. It will be the first conservation community of its kind in the San Francisco Bay Area.
