Project Information


The subject EIR has studied Plot Plan No. 24883 and Change of Zone No. 07782.  The EIR consists of a project level impact study related to the construction of three phases for a special event center and a church facility located northerly of Rancho California Road, southerly of Vino Way, easterly of Calle Contento, and westerly of Anza Road.  Additionally, the project includes a zone change component that will add a use to an existing zone.  This will be a more programmatic analysis and will potentially impact the entire Citrus Vineyard Zone (C/V). 

More specifically, the Calvary Chapel Bible Fellowship is proposing Plot Plan No. 24883 and Change of Zone No. 07782.  Plot Plan No. 24833 (PP 24883) consists of the construction of a 2,480 square foot special occasions facility and restroom building, a 68,389 square foot open air wedding ceremony assembly area, a 768 square foot residence (Phase I), a 31,496 square foot church building comprised of classrooms, offices, assembly areas, and porches (Phase II), and a 49,379 square foot church building for the sanctuary, offices, restrooms, and porches (Phase III).

Change of Zone No. 07782 (CZ 7782) and its associated amendment to Ordinance No. 348 proposes to amend Riverside County Ordinance No. 348, Section 14.73 subsection b. to include churches, temples and other places of religious worship as a permitted use, subject to Plot Plan approval in the Citrus/Vineyard Zone (C/V Zone), and amend Section 14.74 of Ordinance No. 348 to include development standards for churches, temples and other places of religious worship in the C/V Zone.
