Timber Ridge at Sanders Pines is located within the Eden Park neighborhood of Immokalee. Eden Park is home to a large number of mobile homes and substandard housing units. For this reason, preserving these affordable units was critical to Rural Neighborhoods’ goal of helping families secure safe, affordable housing and revitalizing the Eden Park-Esperanza Place neighborhoods.
Since 2015, Rural Neighborhoods has been working with residents and stakeholders to envision changes for the Eden Park area. Through many meetings and discussions, these ideas have taken shape and are the foundation of the Mi Casa Kominote M Revitalization Plan for the area. Rural Neighborhoods will continue working with residents to pursue these changes, improve Eden Park, and preserve the units at Timber Ridge at Sanders Pines.
