Pulte Homes is working on a proposed development of the Hammers Farm property, our neighbors across Cardinal Street and to the southwest. The 85-acre, 275-lot development, named Pinnacle, is a new residential neighborhood that will consist of single level homes, targeted at buyers age 55 and older (age restricted community).
Pulte has approached Crown of Glory and proposed a land swap with a portion of the southern point of our property, allowing Pulte to put in a road into the new development with access to Chestnut Street. Crown of Glory has formed an ad hoc committee that will evaluate and negotiate with Pulte the land swap possibility. The Committee is headed by Bob Lindall and includes Steve Clay, Bob Chinnock, Tom Gray and Steve Tinker. Negotiations are now on hold as Pulte works with the City of Chaska to get approvals for the development. Any decisions about a land swap will have to be approved by the full congregation.
Pulte has invited the public (residents who will be in close proximity to the new development) to attend an informational meeting,
September 6, at 6:30 p.m.
at the Chaska Community Center – Community Room, 1661 Park Ridge Drive, Chaska. At the meeting Pulte will review the preliminary concepts of the development, in advance of any official City approvals. If you have feedback or questions about the meeting, you can contact the Pulte representative, Paul Heuer at 952-229-0722 or at
The City of Chaska Planning Commission has also notified Crown of Glory that there will be a public hearing on
Wednesday, September 12 at 7:00 p.m.
in the Council Chambers, Chaska City Hall, One City Hall Plaza, Chaska, for the consideration of a “Concept Plan” for redevelopment of the Hammers Property as submitted by Pulte Homes.
All are welcome to attend and be heard.
Once City approvals are in hand, Pulte will contact Crown of Glory to restart our discussions. As we learn more, we will keep the congregation informed. If you have questions about the land swap feel free to talk to Bob Lindall, Steve Tinker, or any of the members of our ad hoc committee.
