Document Description
The proposed Project plans to re-develop the existing 305-acre site into a Resort Community by expanding the hotel and conference center, and by adding a private residential component. The proposed Project would be divided into five Planning Areas and would expand the existing hotel by adding 99 new rooms, increase the size of the conference center, and add a spa facility. The project would re-design portions of the existing 27-hole golf course by eliminating 9 holes and create an 18-hole championship golf course. Private residential land uses would be introduced that would include 409 dwelling units, with a mix of single family detached homes, townhomes and stacked flat units. The Project proposes an optional "Active Adult" overlay that would convert portions of the hotel rooms into 126 Active Adult residential units, which would increase the total proposed dwelling units from 409 to 535 units if this option is pursued. The Project would allow a vacation rental component for 174 dwelling units located in the townhome and stacked flat residential areas that could be managed by the Temecula Creek Inn facility, if pursued by the individual owner. The proposed Project would re-align and improve portions of Rainbow Canyon Road along the property frontage to comply with the City of Temecula's engineering standards for radii and site distance.
