Beaumont Heights Business Centre Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
County LU: Rural Community – Estate Density Residential (RC-EDR) and Rural Mountainous (RM); County Zoning: W-2 (Controlled development areas)
Document Description
The project proposes to develop four industrial buildings and associated improvements within the Development Site, which encompasses approximately 383.7 acres. The Development Site and the approximately 182.3-acre area to the east of the Development Site are proposed to be annexed into the City’s jurisdiction. The southern approximately 168.5 acres are proposed solely for limited temporary construction staging and earthwork balance activities; no permanent development or annexation is proposed in this portion of the site. The remaining approximately 63.2-acre area of the project site involve transportation improvements along SR-79 and utility installation along California Avenue. Overall, the proposed development would include approximately 5,275,306 square feet of combined office and industrial building area. However, since ultimate end users for the proposed project have not been identified, to allow for flexibility and variability in final building design and layout, a conservative scenario with a maximum buildout of approximately 5.7 million square feet will be assumed in the EIR analysis. City discretionary approvals include EIR certification, General Plan Amendment, Pre-Zoning, Subdivision, and Development Agreement.
