Description: GCH provided several site planning strategies and alternatives leading to a final long range plan that was submitted to the city of Ephrata. The plan includes over 600 single-family residential lots, a central community center, two large primary public parks, a lake, several smaller neighborhood parks and over 6 miles of inter-connective multi-use trails. GCH assisted the land owner in working with the city of Ephrata and public focus groups to develop a plan that responds to the planned growth of the city as well as projected market requirements.
