Current uses in the Project Area are predominantly agricultural operations, including almond, walnut, and cherry orchards and fallow land. Twenty-five home sites and one-horse ranch exist within the Project Area and many of them have accessory structures on-site including storage buildings, shop buildings, and barn structures. The Project Area also includes a commercial nursery business and truck storage area. An approximately 150-acre solar farm and the Modesto Rifle Club exist in the southwest portion of the Project Area.
The principal objective of the proposed Project is the expansion of the City of Riverbank Sphere of Influence, and approval and subsequent implementation of the Specific Plan. The quantifiable objectives include expansion of the Riverbank Sphere of Influence by approximately 1,522 acres, annexation of approximately 993 acres into the Riverbank City limits, extension of infrastructure to the annexed area to serve development, and the subsequent development of the annexed area for: Low Density Residential, Medium Density Residential, High Density Residential, Mixed-Use, and Parks/Recreation, including all infrastructure and utilities necessary to service the development.
