Present Land Use
The proposed project will affect properties in portions of Moreno Valley, and portions of unincorporated Riverside County. Portions lie within an area designated by Moreno Valley as Residential (R1, R2, R3, R5, R10, R15, R20, and R5/15), Rural Residential, Hillside Residential Residential/Office, Office, Commercial, Business Park/Light Industrial, Open Space, Floodplain, and Public Facilities land use designations. Portions lie within an area designated by Riverside County as Rural Residential, Rural Mountainous, Rural Community-Very Low Density Residential, Conservation Habitat, Open Space Rural, and Open Space Recreation land use designations.
The Project provides a variety of modifications to the existing MDP related to the size, type, and conceptual locations of drainage facilities and basins in order to improve flood protection for both existing users and future development within the Moreno watershed. The Project proposes the administration, construction, operation, and maintenance of approximately 30 miles of storm drains and channels, and approximately 82 acres of detention and debris basins.
