We moved into a new home in a wonderful 55+ community---JB Ranch. The commmunity is significantly smaller than OTOW, Oak Run, Stonecreek, etc. and the pool/community center won't be completed until the spring of 2018, but we are extremely happy here. JB Ranch is a very quiet community. The grounds are quite nice--great for biking and walks-- and it's exceptionally convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, etc.-- just off of 200 and SW 60th Avenue. The neighbors are terrific--we were invited to two parties shortly after moving in. This community isn't for folks who want clubs or on-site golf, but if you're looking for a quiet well-located community with HOA fees a fraction of OTOW's, come visit! We purchased our home from DR Horton/Freedom Homes. Lennar is completing spec homes and will open its model soon.

Not sure if anyone has posted this, and apologies if so, but I thought it was worthy of having this information in here for the forum.


Reported: Apr 3, 2018


"Kenneth Colen hopes to open the On Top of the World lifestyle to working families with the company’s planned debut of a community not restricted to those age 55 and older."

"The Marion County Planning and Zoning Commission last week recommended approval of a plan that would bring more than 2,500 homes to a 467-acre section of pasture land on the east side of Southwest 80th Avenue, across from the entrance of the Del Webb Stone Creek community. The section under review is the southern portion of the much grander 1,853-acre area planned for eventual development."

Out. Standing. (sarc) Thanks for posting, no, I was not aware of that. Calling your attention to this little gem in the article: "The property borders Southwest 60th Avenue to the east, across from the Paddock Post Office and Fore Ranch;" so that you can put it together with this recent article:

I just thought the new development for families was interesting in the scope of it having the potential to bring even more shopping, restaurants, and maybe even medical stuff to the area around Stone Creek and OTOTW. You can never have to many grocery stores or restaurants in my opinion.
