The Proposed Project (Project) would separate the 590.3 acres north of Matthews Road from the existing Menifee Valley Ranch Specific Plan. The Project includes the creation of the new Menifee Valley Specific Plan (MVSP) on tthis 590.3 acres. The MVSP divides the 590.3-acre property into 14 “Planning Areas”. The southern and eastern portions of the MVSP will accommodate 1,718 housing units and neighborhood amenities (e.g., greenbelts, trails, a public sports park, open space and an elementary school site.) The northern and western portions of the MVSP area are reserved for Business Park, Commercial Business Park, and Commercial areas to accommodate up to 6.315 million sf of development (subject to provisions of the MVSP.) A Civic Node in the southwest portion of the MVSP site may accommodate a fire station, train transit stop, and/or other needed public/quasi-public use. The project includes a GPA to revise the current Specific Plan and to eliminate McLauglin Road within the MVSP from the Circulation element; adoption of a new Specific Plan; an accompanying change of zone, a TPM to identify developable lots and backbone infrastructure; and a Development Agreement between the Applicant and the City.
