Document Description
The Project consists of applications for a General Plan Amendment (GPA 200007), Change of Zone (CZ 2000028), Tentative Parcel Map (TPM 38551), and Plot Plan (PP 220039). Approximately 33.73 acres of the 46.13-acre Project site are proposed for the development of seven (7) light industrial warehouse buildings ranging in size from 33,820 square feet (s.f.) 183,090 s.f., together totaling 637,718 s.f. Other features in the development area include vehicle drive aisles, parking areas, truck courts, landscaping, lighting, and signage. Approximately 1.82 acres in the northern corner of the Project site would be dedicated to the Western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP) Reserve System for long-term conservation. Additionally, a segment of the Coldwater Canyon Wash drainage channel would be realigned from the western Project site boundary to the southeastern Project site boundary on approximately 6.87 acres. Approximately 3.10 acres would be dedicated for both the interim and ultimate realignment of Temescal Canyon Road along the southwestern boundary of the Project site. Approximately 0.61-acre in the northern portion of the site would be dedicated as right-of-way for the northwest/ southeast-aligned portion of Dawson Canyon Road (“Dawson Canyon Road South”). Access to the site is proposed via two driveways along the realigned Temescal Canyon Road, one driveway along the southwest/northeast-aligned portion of Dawson Canyon Road (“Dawson Canyon Road North"), and four driveways along Dawson Canyon Road South.
