Cochrane Road Planned Unit Development (PUD) EIR
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The project site is generally level and consists of vacant fallow agriculture land, cultivated land (row crops and vineyards), rural residential uses, and an equestrian boarding facility. Approximately 118 trees, comprised primarily of black walnut (Juglans nigra), are scattered throughout the project site.

Document Description
The Cochrane Road Planned Unit Development (PUD) project (hereinafter "proposed project") would include two large anchor stores, retail shops, restaurants (sit-down and fast-food), and a multi-plex cinema with up to 14 screens. The proposed anchor stores could consist of the relocation and expansion of the 'Target' store (currently located at the Cochrane Plaza shopping center) and construction of over 530,000 square feet of additional retail, which could include a home improvement store, wholesale store or department store; retails shops; restaurants (sit-down and fast food); and a 63,200 square foot multi-plex cinema with up to 14 screens. The proposed project includes an optional 12-position fuel station that would incorporate a 1,600 square foot convenience market and a 600 square foot car wash as a substitution for 6,000 square feet of retail space. Although a cinema is shown on the site plan, it is speculative at this time. Nonetheless, a cinema was included in the EIR analysis to represent a worst-case scenario.
