Document Description
The proposed project consists of a 1,068,950 sf business complex on +/- 127 acres to be constructed in two phases. The EIR is a project-level document for Phase 1 of the project and a program-level document for the entire project site. Phase 1 includes a 60,000 sf medical clinic building, 22,950 sf of highway commercial uses (including fast food restaurants, a gas station, and multi-tenant retail), and a storm water retention basin on approx +/- 19 acres. The land uses planned for phase 1 would be subject to final special use permit approval in the near term as part of this environmental review, and thus the land use mix and site design for this initial phase are defined to a level of detail that would allow for final discretionary review and permit approval. Phase 2 includes approx 986,000 sf of mixed commercial land uses (including regional retail, hotels, office space, and sit-down and fast food restaurants) and an on-site wastewater treatment facility on approx +/- 108 acres. Phase 2 is not expected to commence for several years and specific commercial users located within phase 2 have not been identified. Due to the more conceptual information available for phase 2 at this time, this phase is proposed to receive preliminary. Special use permit approval and is subject to program-level CEQA review in this EIR.
