Palmer Ranch Community Center

Friday Oct 13, 2017
We are pleased to announce that plans are underway for the Master Association to build a much needed Community Center on Palmer Ranch.

On October 6, 2017, the Master Association received the final approval to proceed with the construction of the community center. We will have to do a thing called ‘site and development’ which involves getting permits and stuff like that. There is still a lot of work to be done, but we have completed the county approval phase.
