PROJECT DESCRIPTION:The proposed Project consists of two separate land use plans for the 582.9-acre Project site. The “Primary Land Use Plan” anticipates that the Project would be constructed with Ramona Expressway providing primary access from the north and Nuevo Road providing access from the south, and that the site would be developed with up to 389.2 acres of Light Industrial land uses, 49.1 acres of Business Park land uses, 8.0 acres of Commercial Retail land uses, Open Space – Conservation on 17.4 acres, Open Space – Conservation Habitat on 81.6 acres, and major roadways on 37.6 acres. However, the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) is currently planning the construction of a regional transportation facility, the “Mid-County Parkway (MCP),” a segment of which, along with an interchange, is planned to traverse the northwestern portions of the Project site. Due to environmental, economic, right of way, or other factors, it is possible that RCTC ultimately may delay the MCP or not construct the MCP in this portion of Riverside County. Notwithstanding, the “Alternative Land Use Plan” anticipates that the MCP would be constructed through the northwest portions of the site, in which case the site would be developed with 389.2 acres of Light Industrial land uses, 51.5 acres of Business Park land uses, 8.5 acres of Commercial Retail land uses, 17.4 acres of Open Space – Conservation, 81.6 acres of Open Space – Conservation Habitat, and 34.7 acres of major roadways.
South of the Ramona Expressway and Lake Perris, north of Nuevo Road, east of Foothill Drive, and west of the future extension of Menifee Road.
