Document Description
Annexation and concurrent extension of the Sphere of Influence of approximately 4,700 acres from the unincorporated portions of Riverside County into the incorporated City of Temecula. The project is a shift between two local jurisdictions which will result in the re-assigning of responsibility for service provisions from the County of Riverside to the City of Temecula and the Temecula Community Services District. Further this project includes a General Plan Amendment from the County of Riverside designation of Rural Mountainous (10 acre minimum lot size) and Open Space Conservation Habitat to City of Temecula Hillside Residential (10 acre minimum lot size), and Open Space (OS), and Change of Zone from County of Riverside Rural Residential (RR) to City of Temecula Hillside Residential (HR) and Open Space Conservation (OS-C). The density and type of development permitted under the proposed City General Plan designation and proposed zone change will be substantially the same as that now permitted under the County's existing General Plan and zoning designations except that mining and quarry operations would be prohibited under the proposed City General Plan designation and proposed zone change.
