Document Description
The applicant, H.G. Fenton Company, proposes to amend SP 90-24 and develop the University Office and Medical Park project (proposed project). The proposed project involves the development of approximately 87 acres with medical offices, professional offices, and a mix of uses as allowed by the existing Specific Plan. Discovery Street will be re-aligned through the project site, and sensitive habitat areas associated with San Marcos Creek will be preserved as open space. The University Office and Medical Park project would also consolidate the development areas into two planning areas. The Medical Office/Professional Office/Hospital/Support Retail development area encompasses approximately 32.5 acres south of the re-alignment Discovery Street and 19 net acres north of the re-aligned Discovery Street. Uses envisioned for these areas would include medical offices, dental offices, surgery centers, urgent care centers, medical laboratories, pharmacies, professional offices, research facilities, and support retail commercial uses. A health care facility and/or smaller scale hospital would also be allowed. The permitted uses under the University Office and Medical Park project would be uses allowed under the existing Specific Plan. Certain uses which require a conditional use permit under the existing Specific Plan will be permitted under the University Office and Medical Park project subject to subsequent approval of a Site Development Permit as set forth in the Specific Plan amendment. A temporary rock-crushing facility is proposed to be located on the northeastern portion of the project site or adjacent site. Approximately 16 acres located on both sides of Grand Avenue in the northern portion of the Specific Plan area would be preserved as open space under the proposed Habitat Preservation development area. This portion of the project site contains sensitive wetlands vegetation associated with San Marcos Creek. Preserving this area as open space will minimize potential impacts to biological resources in this area. The existing Specific Plan does not include a habitat preservation area.
