Document Description
The Project involves the proposed development of a 1,238,992 square foot (s.f.) warehouse building and a potential Imperial Irrigation District (IID) joint electric substation on an 83.0-acre property located on the northeast corner of Rio Del Sol and 30th Avenue in the Thousand Palms community of unincorporated Riverside County in the City of Cathedral City’s sphere of influence. The governmental approvals requested from Riverside County to implement the Project consist of the following: • General Plan Amendment No. 220004 (GPA 220004) is a proposal to modify the General Plan and Western Coachella Valley Area Plan (WCVAP) land uses designation on the eastern +/- half of the Project site from “Community Development – Medium Density Residential (CD-MDR)” to “Community Development – Light Industrial (LI).” The western +/- half of the Project site would not be affected by GPA 220004 and would continue to be designated for LI land uses. The General Plan Amendment would make the entire Project site consistent with one land use designation of “Community Development – Light Industrial (LI),” and the proposed GPA would not affect the Project site’s General Plan Foundation Component designation, which would remain as “Community Development.” • Change of Zone No. 2200013 (CZ 2200013) is a proposal to change the zoning classification for the eastern +/- half of the Project site from “Residential – Agricultural (R-A)” to “Manufacturing – Service Commercial (M-SC).” The western +/- half of the Project site would not be affected by CZ 2200013 and would continue to be zoned for M-SC land uses. The Change of Zone would amend roughly half the site in order to zone the entire site as Manufacturing-Service Commercial in order to eliminate any split zoning. • Plot Plan No. 220022 (PPT 220022) is a proposal for the development of the 83.0-acre property with a 1,238,992 s.f. warehouse building that includes 20,000 s.f. off office uses and 1,218,992 s.f. of warehouse space, as well as a potential 50 megawatt (MW) IID joint electric substation . Other proposed features include landscaping, parking areas, docking doors, and frontage improvements along Rio Del Sol Road and 30th Avenue. Off-site improvements required to implement the Project entail limited off-site road improvements including the paving of Robert Road between 30th Avenue and Del Norte Way and the installation of power poles supporting overhead lines between the potential onsite IID substation and existing IID facilities.
