The Bickford Ranch Specific Plan site consists of approximately 1,927.9 acres located within unincorporated Placer County (County) between the City of Lincoln and the communities of Penryn and Newcastle. The project site is generally bound by Sierra College Boulevard to the west, State Route 193 to the north, and English Colony Way to the south except for a parcel at the northeast corner of Sierra College Boulevard and Caperton Court. The site extends approximately 3.5 miles from the westerly border on Sierra College Boulevard to its easterly border. A small portion of the site is located southwest of Sierra College Boulevard. The Union Pacific Railroad is located along portions of the southern boundary and passes beneath Boulder Ridge in the southeast portion of the property through the approximately 1,600-foot-long Clark Tunnel. Clover Valley Reservoir and Clover Valley Creek are also located near the site’s southern boundary. At buildout, the BRSP will provide 1,890 residential units, accommodate 4,154 residents and include 60% of the Plan Area in open space, park and recreation uses.
