About The Preserve


The Preserve consists of 1,500 acres of beautiful natural prairie and woodlands along the Raccoon
River. The Preserve offers walk-out, daylight, and standard options with several lots that back to protected conservation land that will serve as a permanent buffer from future development. The Preserve will be developed in phases over the next decade and will provide opportunities for single
family residential homes, multifamily developments, and neighborhood retail. The end result will be a truly unique community with the conveniences of city living and the serenity of a rural homestead.
