Mixed-use community will honor Dewey-Humboldt’s rural character and Young’s Farm heritage

Scottsdale, Ariz., -- Jan. 23, 2006 – Monogram Companies, an experienced developer with a history of building appropriately scaled neighborhoods that enhance existing communities, and Tom Chambers Properties Inc., announced today the purchase of Young’s Farm. The planning process is underway; however the Young family will continue to operate the farm through 2006. The appropriately scaled, low-density residential and commercial village will include retailers such as a bank, grocery store, restaurant and the farmers’ market to provide services to the people of Dewey-Humboldt and visitors.

Monogram specializes in creating communities that often require special expertise and the ability and sensitivity to work closely with surrounding residents and local organizations, as well as city, county, state and federal agencies, to resolve complicated land development issues. The company has assembled a team of experts in planning, residential and commercial architectural design, hydrology, water resources, traffic, and landscape architecture to ensure best practices throughout all aspects of this project.

“Being selected to guide this historic property through its next phase of development is an honor and an exciting opportunity,” states Monogram Partner Don Allison. “We appreciate how important this land has been to generations of area residents and others throughout Arizona. Our goal is to develop a project that honors the historical significance and small-town charm of Young’s Farm and the surrounding area. This signature project will include a variety of residential home styles and a Market Place that will provide added services and tax revenue for the people of Dewey-Humboldt. We look forward to meeting our future neighbors and becoming an integral part of this vibrant community.”

Dewey-Humboldt resident and real estate investor Julie Conner continues to hold an interest in this project and will be actively involved in the community outreach program.

Looks like this one is a thing of the past.. I like the thought of someone actual using the old farm for some sort of gain.
