Throughout the 20th century, Oak Valley remained fairly similar, still mainly small ranches. However, by the 1970s, many had gone into decline, even being abandoned. The creation of new jobs in the Inland Empire region of Southern California, roughly 45 minutes away, coupled with the need for housing led to the first housing tracts in Oak Valley. The first one, named Red Rock Ranch, is just off Oak Valley Boulevard and was the site of an old cattle ranch bought out by developers.
Here, planning of streets and lots for the first phase of development begins. Altogether, the first phase will contain around 70 homes.
The streets are fully paved and Red Rock Ranch is officially open to construction. Already, a few homes are being constructed. Some are even fully complete and ready for their new residents. Houses are from the low 100s, so don't miss your chance for a brand new house!
The development was a major success, selling out within a year. Phases 2 and 3 are being planned out and implemented now.
