Many of you are familiar with our flag barn, which has become somewhat of an icon to those of us who live here. We painted it in stars and stripes in the days after 9/11 to express our love of country during a difficult time. This land surrounding the barn is profoundly meaningful to us, and has always held the promise of becoming something great.
For generations, our family has been deeply involved in Madera and Fresno Counties. We are committed to strengthening the communities we build in with a single, overriding goal: to build strong communities for better lives. That’s why we’re thrilled that Community Medical Centers (CMC) has purchased our 200-acre flag barn property at the northeast corner of Highway 41 and Avenue 12.
In keeping with its tradition of long-term, visionary planning, CMC plans to build an eventual facility to meet the region’s future healthcare needs in this prime development corridor of Madera County’s Rio Mesa Area Plan. This area is also where the new Riverstone community is situated and where our upcoming new master planned community of Tesoro Viejo will be.
CMC’s presence there will be an enormous asset to the residents of Madera County, and we’re extremely pleased that we could be a part of this important step for their organization. We couldn’t have asked for better owners, who are just as proud as we were to hold such a landmark property. As we bid a fond farewell to our beloved flag barn property, we do so with hope – knowing that the future of this land will be a great benefit to the surrounding communities for generations to come.
Madera County Board of Supervisors, Community Medical Centers leaders, and the McCaffrey family celebrate the announcement of Community Medical Center’s purchase of the flag barn property.
