Present Land Use
The proposed project site is vacant land that is currently used without owner permission for mountain bike, equestrian, and motorized off-highway vehicle usage. The project site is currently designated by the RCIP General Plan as "Medium Density Residential (2-5 du/acre)," "Medium High Density Residential (5-8 du/acre)," "High Density Residential (8-14 du/acre)," "Very High Density Residential (14-20 du/acre)," "Commercial Retail," "Open-Space Recreational," and "Open-Space Conservation." These land use designations reflect the land uses of the Rio Vista Specific Plan, which was adopted in 1992. The surrounding land use designations include a mix of urban and rural residential densities, as well as industrial and commercial designations. The proposed project's consistency with existing and planned land uses within the surrounding area will be discussed in the forthcoming EIR.

Document Description
Specific Plan No. 243 Amendment No. 1: The proposed project is an amendment of the Rio Vista Specific Plan, which is a mixed use master planned development located in the Rubidoux community in the unincorporated portion of northwestern Riverside County, California. The project site is bounded on the west by Armstrong Road, on the south by Highway 60 and on the east by Rubidoux Boulevard. The project site is south of El Rivino Road. The project consists of the following land use designations: medium density residential, a K-6 school, high density residential, medium high density residential, very high density residential, open space, and parks. The proposed Rio Vista Specific Plan includes approximately 324.6 acres of residential development, within four density ranges, totaling approximately 1,762 residential units, a 17.7-acre elementary school site, approximately 50.0 acres of neighborhood park sites, 14.0 acres of landscaping on manufactured slopes and 464.8 acres of open space conservation. The Rio Vista park sites are connected by a recreation paseo system. Change of Zone No. 7159: Proposes a textual change to the project site's adopted SP (Specific Plan) zoning to bring it into conformance with the proposed revised land use plan.
