Document Description
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 16,655 residential units (approximately 5.1 units per acre excluding open space) and 5,029,500 square feet of commercial uses. Approximately 1,643 acres (33 percent) of the total land area, is designated for open space uses. In addition to considering adoption of the Specific Plan, the project will require approval of related discretionary actions including amendments to the Riverside and Imperial County General Plan, Zone Changes, Development Agreements with both counties, and large lot Tentative Tract Maps.
