MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Mesa’s historic Dreamland Villa Golf Course has been cleared to make way for the 200 homes that will become Albany Village.

The Arizona Republic reports (https://bit.ly/1bubXs0) the project was approved in 2014 after about a year of making its way through city hall, and despite opposition from a nearby senior community. The project’s proximity to U.S. 60 is expected to attract younger home owners.

Many retirees spoke against the project at a February planning and zoning meeting.

William Lyon Homes is building the community, and paid $4.3 million for the 30 acres of land last summer. The company’s Design Review Board application could be approved this summer, with construction several months away.

Prices haven’t been set for the 2-to-5 bedroom homes.
