Present Land Use: Undeveloped. Zoning: Controlled Development Areas (W-2) and Heavy Agriculture, 10-acre minimum (A-2-10). General Plan Designations: Low Density Residential (LDR), Rural Mountainous (RM), Medium High Density Residential (MHDR), and Commercial Retail (CR).
The proposed Project consists of applications for General Plan Amendment, Change of Zone, Specific Plan, and Tentative Tract Map. Approval of these applications would allow for development of the 335-acre subject property with four residential villages (up to 391 dwelling units) and one commercial planning area (5 acres), as well as a series of planning areas that provide for open space, recreation, and public facility uses. The Project applicant is seeking a General Plan Amendment to change the Riverside County General Plan and Harvest Valley/Winchester Area Plan land use designations for the 335-acre project site from Low Density Residential (LDR), Rural Mountainous (RM), Medium High Density Residential (MHDR), and Commercial Retail (CR) to the land uses as reflected in the Specific Plan including Medium Density Residential (MDR), High Density Residential (HDR), Commercial Retail (CR), Open Space – Recreation (OS-R), Open Space – Conservation Habitat (OS-CH), Open Space – Conservation (OS-C), and Public Facilities (PF). The Project applicant is seeking a Change of Zone to change the zoning classifications of the site from Controlled Development Areas (W-2) and Heavy Agriculture, 10-acre minimum (A-2-10) to Specific Plan, establish a Specific Plan zoning ordinance that will include the permitted uses and development standards for each Planning Area of the Specific Plan, and establish the Planning Area boundaries of the Specific Plan.
