TAFT, Calif. - Today marks the ground breaking for new homes being built in the Sandy Creek Development in Taft.
Up to 400 homes could eventually be built in the area, but for now 32 homes are opening in phase one on Hillard Street.
Plans for the development have been in the works for 10 years.
Environmental concerns have put the project on hold, as the site is home to some endangered species. Officials say many of the homes have already been reserved.
