Present Land Use
The project site has been under long-term agricultural use, and is currently vacant. Present zoning on the project site is A-1-2-1/2 (Light agriculture, 2-1/2 acre minimum lot size) and A-1-5 (Light agriculture, 5-acre minimum lot size). The site is located in the Sun City/Menifee Valley Community Plan. The existing designation on the site is "Residential-2.5 acre minimum" and "Hillside" designations.
Tentative Tract No. 29972 proposes the division and grading of the approximately 148-acre parcel into 405 single-family residential lots, four detention basin lots, one approximately 28-acre open space lot, and related streets, and the construction of 405 single-family residences, four detention basins and related streets and infrastructure. The open space lot incorporates the northern hillside portions of the site that have not been subject to ongoing cultivation. The project includes the proposed vacation of Los Carrizos Road and may also include off-site roadway improvements to Pitman Lane, and Maxine Lane. General Plan Amendment Case No. 550 proposes to change the "Residential -2.5 acre minimum" and "Hillside" designations, under the Sun City/Menifee Valley Community Plan, to "Residential - 2 to 4 dwelling units per acre". Change of Zone No. 6561 proposes to change the site zoning from A-1-2 1/2 (Light Agriculture with 2 1/2 acre minimum lot size) and A-1-5 (Light Agriculture with 5 acre minimum lot size) to R-1 (One-Family Dwellings). In addition to these Riverside County Planning Department land use applications, the proposed project may also include: (1) an action to annex the site to the Valley-Wide Recreation and Park District, (2) issuance of a Streambed Alteration Agreement by the California Department of Fish and Game, (3) United States Army Corps of Engineers consideration of applications for Section 404 Permits pursuant to the Clean Water Act and (4) coverage under California Regional Water Quality Control, Board-Santa Ana Region Order No. 01-34 for construction-period stormwater discharges in the San Jacinto River Watershed.
