Project Location and Setting: The project site lies near the northeast corner of Mission Boulevard and Monte Vista Avenue and is located in the southern part of the City at the western end of San Bernardino County (Figure 1, Project Location). Regionally, the City is bordered by the Cities of Pomona, Claremont, Upland, Ontario, and Chino. Locally, the project site is bound by State Street to the north, multi-family and single-family residences and commercial uses to the south, industrial uses to the west, and industrial uses and Central Avenue to the east.
The project site is composed of three parcels (APN 1101-311-15, 1101-311-17, and 1101-311-19) and is approximately 5.13 acres in size. Two of the parcels are currently undeveloped and are largely comprised of disturbed soils and minimal vegetation. The remaining parcel is developed and features an unoccupied building that was previously used as an auto-sales office. The project site is associated with street address 5006 and 5010 Mission Boulevard. The project site is located within a highly developed part of the City and is surrounded by a mix of urbanized land uses.
The project site is not identified on any of the lists enumerated under Section 65962.5 of the Government Code including, but not limited to lists of hazardous waste facilities, land designated as hazardous waste property, and hazardous waste disposal sites, and the information in the Hazardous Waste and Substances Statement required under subdivision (f) of that section.
Project Description: The project includes the construction of an approximately 115,350 square- foot, one-story industrial/warehouse facility on an approximately 5.13-acre property. In addition to the industrial/warehouse building, the project would include passenger vehicle parking spaces, trailer parking spaces, tractor-trailer loading docks, and other associated site improvements such as landscaping, sidewalks, and internal driveways.
The following discretionary approvals would be required before implementing the project:
- General Plan Amendment
- Parcel Map
- Precise Plan of Design
- Other ministerial permits
Public Hearing: A public hearing on the project has not yet been scheduled. Once this hearing has been scheduled, a separate notice of public hearing will be publicly circulated consistent with all applicable public noticing requirements set forth by the City and State law.
