Document Description
The proposed Project consists of applications for GPA 220004, CZ 2200013, and PPT 220022 to allow for the development of a 1,238,992 s.f. warehouse building and an Imperial Irrigation District (IID) joint electric substation on an 83.0-acre property located at the northeast corner of Rio Del Sol and 30th Avenue in the Thousand Palms community of unincorporated Riverside County. Proposed GPA 220004 would change the General Plan land use designation on the eastern +/- half of the property from “Medium Density Residential (MDR)” to “Light Industrial (LI).” Proposed CZ 2200013 would change the zoning classification for the eastern +/- half of the property from “Residential – Agriculture (R-A)” to “Manufacturing – Service Commercial (M-SC).” PPT 220022 is proposed to allow for development of the property with a 1,238,992 s.f. warehouse building that includes 20,000 s.f. of office uses at the four corners of the proposed building and 1,218,992 s.f. of warehouse space. A total of 212 truck docking doors are proposed, with 106 dock doors facing north and 106 dock doors facing south. Access to the Project site would be accommodated by two driveways connecting with Rio Del Sol and one driveway connecting with 30th Avenue. An IID joint electric substation is proposed in the southeastern corner of the site. Off-site, improvements would occur to Rio Del Sol, 30th Avenue, and Robert Road, and utility poles with overhead lines would be installed to connect the proposed on-site IID electric substation with the electrical grid. Several potential alignments for the off-site utility poles and overhead lines are under consideration by IID, all of which will be studied in the EIR.
