Ramona News Briefs: Scoring begins on Village Place Apartments on 16th Street



Grading is underway for the Village Place Apartments project at 521 16th St.

The luxury apartment site is across from the Ramona Lutheran Church and close to the affordable 62-unit Schmale Family Senior Residence complex completed in summer 2019.

The Village Place apartments will consist of nine three-bedroom units and 16 two-bedroom units and will include garages, developer Bill Vaughan said. The two-story project will be housed in multiple buildings with a brown, beige and green color scheme, with stucco wood cladding and solar power, Vaughan said.

Vaughan is a superintendent at RA Burch Construction, the contractor for the Village Place project.

The four-year project went through a lengthy approval process with the Ramona Community Planning Group and the San Diego County Construction Department.

“I can’t wait to get the project started,” said Vaughan, a Ramona resident since 1978 who is also a co-owner of the project.

Vaughan said he did not know when the project would be completed, adding that cost estimates had not been finalized.
