Draft Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Hemet Retail Center (PPT200023/EA40473) available for public review.
Plot Plan No. 200023 (PPT200023) is a proposal for the construction and operation of a total of 4,425 square feet of commercial building area on 1.22 gross acres consisting of 2,000 square foot commercial retail space and a 2,425 square foot fast food space with drive thru and 900 square foot serving area. The development also includes a trash enclosure, parking and associated landscaping. A median would be installed on SR-79 from the SR-74/SR-79 intersection, south beyond Old State Highway, eliminating access to Old State Highway from southbound traffic on SR-79. Striping would be reconfigured on SR-79 to change the number and width of lanes on SR-79. Off-site roadway improvements have been designed in coordination with Caltrans.
The project site is located in the Green Acres Community in unincorporated Riverside County. The project site is generally bounded by State Route (SR-) 74 to the north, SR-79/Winchester Road (SR-79) to the west, Old State Highway to the south, and a Southern California Edison substation site to the east. The 1.22-acre site is assigned Assessor’s Parcel Numbers (APN) 458-212-001 and -002. The project site is within the northeast portion of Section 15, Township 5S, Range 2W of the San Bernardino Meridian.
The comment period for the MND is from February 8, 2021 to March 9, 2021.
