The Oasis at Indio Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Regional Commercial, Gateway Specific Plan, Mixed-Use Neighborhood
Document Description
The project proposes the development of a mixed-use community on approximately 186 acres of vacant land south of Avenue 42, west of Monroe Street, and north of the Interstate 10 freeway. The mixed use project will consist of residential, commercial, and industrial uses separated into four planning areas. The ElR evaluates potential environmental impacts with the development of two buildout scenarios: (1) Maximum Buildout Scenario (MBS), which assumes buildout of the project resulting in 3,240 dwelling units, 20,000 square feet of retail commercial uses, and 1,806,290 square feet of industrial development; and (2) Scenario #2, which assumes lesser buildout than the MBS but within the maximum intensities permitted. Scenario #2 would result in 1,320 dwelling units, 71,600 square feet of retail commercial uses, a 128 key hotel/motel, and 1,806,290 square feet of industrial uses.
