The Project area is bordered by SR 33/Derrick Avenue of the west, Whitesbridge Avenue alignment on the south, SR 180/San Benito Avenue on the east, and Belmont Avenue to the north.

Future development within Preserve No. 1216 is subject to the City Council approval of a Williamson Act Contract cancellation request or Notice of Non-renewal. Approval of the proposed Project will require adoption of the Specific Plan, a General Plan Amendment for the 650 acres, re-zoning of the Project already within the City limits, pre-zoning of lands still within the County territory, subsequent applications to expand the Sphere of Influence, annexations of County territory into the City of Mendota, and application for Williamson Act Cancellation or Notice of Non-renewal.
