The project includes a comprehensive Specific Plan Amendment to modify and update the overall development plan to reflect current planning and market demands. The existing Duncan Canyon at Ventana Specific Plan (2007 Specific Plan) identified ten (10) Planning Areas and included the development of up to 574,500 square feet (sf) of commercial uses; 842 dwelling units; a Corporate Office Corridor; and the construction of the realigned Lytle Creek Road.
The proposed project re envisions the project site with six (6) Planning Areas. The project would include the development of up to 476,500 sf of commercial uses, 1,671 dwelling units, a focal point piazza (public square), and the construction of the realigned Lytle Creek Road. The greatest difference between the existing Specific Plan and the proposed project is the overall increase in residential units, 1,671 compared to the 842 units under the existing Specific Plan. The additional units are accommodated via an increase in density from 15 to 26 units per acre, along with an increase in residential acreage of 8.6 acres (15 percent), from 55.9 acres under the existing Specific Plan, to 64.5 acres for the proposed project. In addition, the total commercial area would be reduced by 98,000 square-feet (17 percent), from 574,500 square-feet under the existing Specific Plan, to 476,500 for the proposed project. The project requires City of Fontana approval of the following entitlements: General Plan Amendment (GPA No. 21-0006), a Specific Plan Amendment (SPA No. 21-0001) to change the land uses, planning areas, and other elements of the Specific Plan.
The project site is located southeast of the Interstate 15 (I-15), west of Citrus Avenue, and both north and south of Duncan Canyon Road. The approximately 102-acre project site is located in the northern part of the City of Fontana, within San Bernardino County, California. The project is bound by the I-15 Freeway to the north and west, Citrus Avenue to the east, and a Southern California Edison (SCE) Transmission Line Corridor to the south (see Figure 1, Regional Map and Figure 2, Vicinity Map). The project site is currently undeveloped and includes eucalyptus trees in windrows within the northern portion of the site.
