Document Description
The City of Imperial proposes to develop the Project site with a variety of recreation uses including a Regional Park and Equestrian Center on a 143-acre parcel immediately adjacent to the northern boundary of the City of Imperial and 0.5 mile west of SR 86. The Project site is bounded by Larsen Road on the north, La Brucherie Road on the east, Ralph Road on the south, and the Newside Canal on the west. The Project site consists of one parcel (APN 063-010-049) and is currently within the City's Sphere of Influence (SOI) in unincorporated Imperial County and surrounded by several proposed subdivisions. The proposed Project includes a 22.98 acre Sportplex Regional park with tournament-level sports fields; 56.5 acres for an equestrian facility which includes a 160,000 sf covered arena (Figure 11), outdoor arena, stables, and a Recreational Vehicle Park with 200 parking spaces; two open space parks (Park #1 = 9.5 acres, Park #2 = 5.27 acres) totaling 14.77 acres; 4.4 acres of Commercial Center with 15,000 sf for restaurants and equestrian-related retail stores; and 6.25 acres for an olive orchard and mill. As a regional park, this facility would serve residents from the City of Imperial, City of Brawley, City of El Centro and the incorporated area of the County. The park would provide "recreation tourism" in attracting visitors to the park from outside the Imperial Valley into the incorporated City boundaries.
