The proposed project would develop the project site with the Riverside University Healthcare System (RUHS) Mead Valley Wellness Village, consisting of five buildings, associated living facilities for patients, 633 surface parking spaces, landscaping, and walkways set in a campus setting. The five buildings would range in size from one to four stories and would include: (1) an approximately 99,250-square-foot community wellness and education center; (2) an approximately 40,854 square foot building for children and youth services, which will include 24 beds associated with the children and youth services crisis residential program and 6 bed associated with the short-term residential therapeutic program, for a total of 30 beds; (3) an approximately 50,989 square foot building for urgent care services, including 16 beds associated with the crisis residential program and 40 beds associated the substance use disorder residential program, for a total of 56 beds. This building would also include 12 “non-bed” spots associated with adult mental health urgent care services, 12 spots associated with the children’s mental health urgent care services, and 15 spots associated with the sobering center; (4) an approximately 192,495-square-foot supportive transitional housing building for those receiving treatment, including 76 beds associated with the recovery residence and 220 beds associated with supportive housing, for a total of 296 beds; and (5) an approximately 66,773-square-foot extended residential care building for those receiving treatment, including 50 beds associated with mental health rehabilitation and 90 beds associated with adult residents, for a total of 140 beds. The five buildings would total approximately 450,361 square feet. Overall, the proposed project would develop the project site with approximately 522 beds. Of the 522 beds, 442 are expected to be used by those staying longer than 30 days. The RUHS Wellness Village provides for an entire continuum of behavioral health and wellness care, from urgent mental health treatment to supportive housing, including outpatient care, education, and social services. Services provided would also include mental health residential services for children and adults and substance use disorder residential services for adults.
In addition, the proposed project includes potential buildout of a conceptual future building that would include up to 20,000 square feet of administrative/office uses on the project site independent from the RUHS Wellness Village. Construc??on of the future building is not being contemplated at this ??me, but the County anticipates the future building will be constructed in the near future; therefore, its development is reasonably foreseeable and evaluated in the IS/MND at the project level, to the extent feasible.
The proposed project would include off-site improvements to existing Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) sewer infrastructure in the vicinity of the project site. The improvements would occur predominantly within existing rights-of-way, with one segment within an EMWD beneficial easement on private property. The existing 8-inch-diameter sewer lines in Placentia Avenue, Water Street, and along West Frontage Road between Placentia Avenue and Water Street would be replaced with 10-inch-diameter sewer lines and connect to the existing 10-inch-diameter sewer line in West Frontage Road.
The proposed project also includes a Schedule J Tentative Map that proposes to subdivide the site into six (6) lots to facilitate financing and/or conveying title of separate components of the proposed project.
