Developers are proposing to build 312 single-family homes and a church on the 113 acres that had been the Wagner Farms property on Route 59 in unincorporated Naperville.

The Wagner family announced in March that the farm was being sold to Pulte Homes and its popular farm stand would not be reopening in the summer. On Wednesday, Pulte will ask the Naperville Planning and Zoning Commission to recommend rezoning the property and, at a later date, to annex it into the city.

Single-family detached homes are proposed for about 105 acres of the site at Route 59 and 103rd Street, requiring the zoning be changed from agricultural to residential. The remaining eight acres would be rezoned for office, commercial and institutional use to accommodate a new Compass Evangelical Free Church, which already has two Naperville locations and one each in Bolingbrook and Wheaton.
