Norman Builder Seeks OK on 220-Acre Development

The company has developed such residential communities as Seminole Pointe in Edmond and Dublin Bay in southeast Oklahoma City.

Ideal officials were unavailable for comment on Tuesday.

Valencia will add to one of the fastest-growing intersections of far northwest Oklahoma City. The area is already home to such new communities as Villas at Copper Creek, Clifford Farms and Mulholland.
