Supervisors approve rezone and map for San Jacinto Valley project


The Riverside County Board of Supervisors approved a rezone and tentative tract map for a 195-unit subdivision in the San Jacinto Valley.

The supervisors’ 5-0 vote March 10 approves a change of zone for the 45 acres to Planned Residential (R-4). In addition to the 195 single-family lots the map will have five open space lots which will provide for a park, paseos and basins. The supervisors also adopted an environmental Mitigated Negative Declaration for the project.

The property is north of Palm Avenue, south of Olive Avenue, and west of Lincoln Avenue. Its zoning had been a combination of A-1-5 (Light Agriculture, 5 acre minimum), A-2-10 (Heavy Agriculture, 10 acre minimum), C-P-S (Scenic Highway Commercial), and R-T (Mobilehome Subdivisions and Mobilehome Parks). The property is in the Valley Vista Zoning District of the San Jacinto Valley Area Plan.

The residential lots will have a minimum size of 5,000 square feet. The existing land use designations of MDR (Medium Density Residential, 2 to 5 dwelling units per acre) and MHDR (Medium High Density Residential, 5 to 8 dwelling units per acre) were not changed.

The county’s Planning Commission reviewed the project Nov. 20 and voted 4-0 to recommend approval.
