Present Land Use
Vacant/Undeveloped; Zoning: Business Park B-P, Light Industrial L-1, Residential Low Medium R-L-M; General Plan: Business Park BP, Light Industrial LI, Residential Low Medium Density RLM
The Project includes applications for a General Plan Amendment (GPA 22-03), Zone Change (ZC 22-01 (SPA Area 4)), establishment of the Oak Valley North Specific Plan, a Tentative Parcel Map (TPM 38589), Development Plan Review (DPR) 22-05 and Conditional Use Permit (CUP) 22-02 (Building 1), DPR 22-06 and CUP 22-03 (Building 2), and DPR 22-07 and CUP 22-02 (Building 3). General Plan Amendment (GPA 22-03), Zone Change (ZC 22-01 (SPA Area 4)), and establishment of the Oak Valley North Specific Plan to allow for the development of up to 1,515,888 s.f. of light industrial building space and up to 396 high density residential units on 108.2 acres. Three accompanying Development Plan Reviews and Conditional Use Permits also are proposed, including Development Plan Review (DPR) 22-05 and Conditional Use Permit (CUP) 22-02 (Building 1), DPR 22-06 and CUP 22-03 (Building 2), and DPR 22-07 and CUP 22-02 (Building 3). GPA 22-03 proposes to modify the land use element of the City of Calimesa 2014 General Plan (General Plan) to change the General Plan land use designations on the property from Business Park (BP), Light Industrial (LI), and Residential Low Medium Density (RLM) to Light Industrial (LI) and Residential High Density (RH). ZC 22-01 (SPA Area 4) proposes to modify the City’s official zoning map as it applies to the property to change the zoning classifications from Business Park (B-P), Light Industrial (L-I) and Residential Low Medium (R-L-M) to a zoning classification of Specific Plan Area (SPA). The Oak Valley North Specific Plan (SPA Area 4) proposes to establish a Specific Plan for the property and apply two land use designations: Light Industrial (LI) and Residential High (RH). The approximately 108.2-acre Specific Plan area would be divided into three planning areas for planning purposes. Planning Area 1 would be 87.0 acres and accommodate up to 1,515,888 square feet (s.f.) of LI building space. Planning Area 2 would be 6.3 acres and allow up to 126 residential units at a density of up to 20 dwelling units per acre (du/ac). Planning Area 3 would be 13.5 acres and allow up to 270 residential units at a density of up to 20 du/ac. The balance of the acreage (1.4 acres) would be designated as roadway. The Specific Plan also proposes development standards that would serve as the property’s zoning and includes design guidelines for architecture, landscaping, and other physical attributes of the proposed development. TPM 38598 is a proposed parcel map to subdivide the subject site into six (6) parcels ranging in size from 0.4 to 43.7 net acres. TPM 38589 also would subdivide the site to dedicate ± 1.65 acres of right-of-way to the City of Calimesa for improvements to Beckwith Road and ± 1.96 acres to the City of Calimesa for improvements to Calimesa Boulevard. The three DRP/CUP applications propose development plans for the Specific Plan’s Planning Area 1. Three rectangular-shaped buildings are proposed with the long sides of the buildings facing northwest and southeast and the short sides of the buildings facing northeast and southwest. Building 1 would have 327,266 s.f. of floor area comprised of 15,000 s.f. of office, 302,266 s.f. of warehouse, and 10,000 s.f. of mezzanine, with 51 loading dock bays positioned on the southeast-facing side of the building facing interior to the site. Building 2 would have 679,984 s.f. of floor area comprised of 15,000 s.f. of office, 654,984 s.f. of warehouse, and 10,000 s.f. of mezzanine, with 48 loading dock bays positioned on the northwest-facing side of the building and 67 loading dock bays positioned on the southeast-facing side of the building facing interior to the site. Building 3 would have 357,670 s.f. of floor area comprised of 20,000 s.f. of office, 322,670 s.f. of warehouse, and 15,000 s.f. of mezzanine, with 56 loading dock bays positioned on the northwest-facing side of the building facing interior to the site. In total, 1,364,920 s.f. of building space is proposed across the three buildings. The buildings are designed for concrete tilt-up construction and would reach a maximum building height of 50 feet. A 120-foot-wide area including streetscape landscaping, multi-use trail, and landscaped slope/buffer would occur adjacent to the south side of Beckwith Avenue. Considering the landscaped slope, the finished floor elevations of the buildings would be approximately 30 feet lower than the existing grade of Beckwith Avenue. Other proposed site features include streetscape and interior site landscaping, drive aisles, truck courts, parking areas for trucks and passenger vehicles, walls, fences, truck court entry gates, lighting, signage, and supporting infrastructure.
