Document Description
The proposed project includes a Specific Plan, General Plan Amendment (GPA), Pre-Zoning, and Annexation of a 235 acre residential and commercial development into the City of Calexico. In the Imperial County General Plan, the proposed project site is designated Urban Area and zoned Agriculture within Urban Overlay (A-2-U). Under the proposed GPA, the project would be designated residential and highway commercial (CH). Specifically, the project is proposing 668 single-family homes (minimum of 6,000 square feet), 25 acres of condominium units, and 14.69 acres of commercial development. Additionally, the proposed project will construct a 14.68-acre retention basin on the northwest corner of the project site. This retention basin will be landscaped and serve as parkland for the development. The proposed project will also set aside 13.7 acres for an elementary school for the Calexico Unified School District. Per the Imperial Irrigation District, a substation is required to be built in the project vicinity to provide electricity to the development. Negotiations are ongoing regarding whether the substation will be built on the proposed project site or an adjacent project site.
