Document Description
The proposed project is part of the greater Rio Mesa Area plan in southeastern Madera County. The Rio Mesa Area plan envisions a multi-village concept establishing focal points for activity and land use master design. Within the Rio Mesa Area plan are three aproved large-scale residential development projects and various other sites that have been targeted for potential development. One of the approved projects is the Tesoro Viejo development, which is currently under construction. This project borders SR-41 and is located approx nine miles north of the city of Fresno and 13 miles east of the city of Madera. The Riverstone project is another large-scale residential development project that is also under construction and is also located on SR-41 in the southwest quadrant of the intersection with Avenue 12. Finally, the Gunner Ranch West project is getting ready to move to construction Medical Center. All three projects include some or all of the following: residential, commercial retail, office, highway commercial, visitor commercial, light industrial, and business park uses, in addition to open space and recreation uses, schools, and other institutional and public uses. The proposed project is designed to facilitate regional traffic flow generated by these projects and other future traffic generators, thereby relieving pressure on SR-41.
