Sunlight began selling lots in October 2017. Two homes were built during the winter of 2017, but many more broke ground during the summer of 2018. This trend has continued, as there are currently 44 homes which have been built or under construction. Sunlight is shaping up to be a healthy community with a family feel.
Phase 1 and Phase 2 consists of 77 lots. Of these, 61 lots have been purchased. There have been questions as to when Phase 3 will be released for sale. No specific date has been set.
Sunlight now has a neighborhood park with a small playground. There is a lot of open grass area where people can run and play games. Benches and a couple of picnic tables have been placed in the park. The dog park, across the street from the park, will be fully functional in summer of 2020. The neighborhood park and dog park are accessible only to residents and guests.
There are two trails in the neighborhood. The Loop Trail is a lengthy trail winding through the northwest area of open space and then following the northern and eastern boundary until it exits at the Sunlight Monument near the entrance to Sunlight. There is another access to the trail at the northwest intersection of Sunlight Dr. and Indian Trails. A second short trail will take you to the highest point of Phase 1. This is the Overlook Trail which can be found next to the eastern fence of the dog park.
Spring of 2020 should be a beautiful time to drive through our neighborhood. Spring snow crab trees will be blossoming along all of the roads. An irrigation system has been installed in the 10’ streetscape between sidewalks and road, with grass seed planted.
Phase 2 of Sunlight project releases 24 additional single-family lots to the market
