Ontario Ranch Business Park Specific Plan Amendment (PSPA21-002, PGPA21-001)
Document Type
SBE - Subsequent EIR
Present Land Use
The existing land usage districts of the Project area are composed of both Business Park and Low-Medium Density Residential.
Document Description
The Ontario Ranch Business Park Specific Plan (Approved SP) was approved in October 2020 and consisted of a General Plan Amendment (GPA), Specific Plan, Development Plan Review, Tentative Parcel Maps, and a Development Agreement to allow for development of an industrial and business park on 11 parcels covering 85 acres in the City. The Approved SP project included eight warehouse buildings ranging from 46,900 square feet (sf) to 618,353 sf, totaling a maximum development of 1,905,027 sf of warehouse and office uses. The Project discussed in this EIR would incorporate the abutting 71.69 acres to the east of the Approved SP site into the overall SP area. The Project discussed in this EIR consists of a Specific Plan Amendment (SPA) and future associated discretionary approvals. The Project would allow for the development of six warehouses on eight parcels, ranging from 61,300 sf to 530,460 sf in building size, to allow development of approximately 1,640,690 sf of industrial and business park land uses. The SPA would expand the existing 85.6-acre Approved SP area and add the 71.69-acre Project site. The SPA proposes a comprehensive land use plan, circulation plan, streetscape plan, infrastructure service plan, grading plan, maintenance plan, phasing plan, design guidelines, development regulations, and implementation measures to guide the development of the Project site into a master-planned industrial and business park. The SPA would also amend the existing SP-AG Overlay to include two new PAs (3 and 4), consisting of Business Park and Industrial General Specific Plan land use districts. With planned adoption of TOP 2050 Update this August, the Project site would have a general plan land use designation of Business Park and Industrial, at which time the underlying SP-AG overlay zone would carry no residential density, and therefore there would be no residential zoning capacity lost as part of Project approval. The TOP 2050 Update accomplishes the intent of SB330 by ensuring that the City has an adequate housing supply consistent with local and State housing requirements, including substantial increases in the variety and quantity of housing types, the impacts of which are addressed in TOP 2050 Update Supplemental EIR.
