NOTE: Extended review to end on March 22, 2010. The proposed Travertine Point Specific Plan would master plan and regulate land use on ~4,918 acres located along the northwestern shore of the Salton Sea within Riverside and Imperial counties, of which 3,936 (~80%) is within the County of Riverside and 982 acres (~20%) is within the County of Imperial. Approximately 1,413 acres (~29%) of the total specific plan area consists of land located within the reservation of the TMDCI; consisting of 766 acres within Riverside County and 647 acres within Imperial County. As proposed, the Travertine Point Specific Plan would provide for the development of residential neighborhoods of varying densities encircling a Town Center along with supporting commercial and community facilities, including a resort, a marina, a cultural preserve and living desert, open space, trails, parks and recreation areas, schools, and golf courses. The proposed Specific Plan would allow for the development of up to 12,300 residential units (~4.3 units per acre) and 3,404,800 sf of commercial uses.
