Document Description
The project is the renewal and expansion of the existing zone boundaries, with the re-approval of the zone for another 10 years for the Riverside County Recycling Market Development Zone (RMDZ). The Riverside County RMDZ includes designating and expanding all the remaining areas of unincorporated Riverside County, and the cities of Banning, Beaumont, Calimesa, Canyon Lake, Corona, Desert Hot Springs, Eastvale, Indian Wells, Jurupa Valley, Lake Elsinore, La Quinta, Menifee, Murrieta, Norco, Palm Desert, Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Riverside, Temecula and Wildomar. Each city that so desires to participate in the RMDZ expansion process will adopt a formal resolution of support from their City Council, as required to verify the City's intentions of joining and supporting the RMDZ program. The already existing participating cities of the RMDZ are Blythe, Cathedral City, Coachella, Hemet, Indio, Moreno Valley, Perris and San Jacinto. The RMDZ Loan Program provides low-interest solid waste from California landfills and to promote market demand for secondary and postconsumer materials. The goal of this process is to continue to offer technical and financial and financial assistance to recycling based businesses that use secondary material from the waste stream as feedstock for their manufacturing processes. Also, to assist cities and unincorporated areas of the county to meet the state mandated 50% reduction in solid waste streams to local and regional landfills. All responsible businesses applying within their designated city for permit issuance will need to comply and provide a full CEQA review once the actual business parameters are established and will submit the necessary CEQA documentation to the lead agency overseeing the approval process.
