Document Description
The Project site is approximately 952 acres and includes a City of Clovis Sphere of Influence (SOI) expansion for the entire 952-acre area. Within the Project site there is the Vista Ranch Master Plan area that is approximately 507 acres that would be annexed into the City of Clovis. The Vista Ranch Master Plan is divided into two areas (MPArea 1 and MPArea 2) based on entitlement requests and the level of design available. MPArea 1 is 368 acres proposed for full entitlements to develop immediately. Entitlements within MPArea 1 include an annexation, general plan amendments, pre-zoning, master plan community overlay district and vesting tentative map. The remaining 139 acres in the Vista Ranch Master Plan (MPArea 2) does not include full entitlements and would require further environmental review to enable future development once more detailed design work is performed. There are also 445 acres of land outside of the Vista Ranch Master Plan, but within the Project site. This area is referred to as Non-Development Area and is part of the SOI expansion but does not propose any other entitlements that would enable development.
