Supervisors finalize French Valley rezone


Last updated 4/19/2018 at 5:46pm

In October 2015 the Riverside County Board of Supervisors approved an environmental Negative Declaration for a proposed general plan amendment and rezone for a 3.5-acre French Valley property. A citizens’ group called Residents for Intelligent Planning challenged the Negative Declaration and rezone, and a settlement was reached in December 2017. The clearance of that settlement allowed the county supervisors to approve a formal rezone April 10.

The supervisors’ 5-0 vote changes the zoning of the property from Rural Residential (R-R) to General Commercial (C-1/C-P). The general plan amendment redesignated the land use designation from Rural Residential with a five-acre minimum lot size (RUR:RR) to Commercial Retail (CD:CR) with a floor area ratio of between 0.2 and 0.35.

The property is northwest of State Route 79, east of Pourroy Road, and south of Keller Road. It abuts Winchester Road, which is classified as an expressway in the circulation element of the county’s general plan, and many of the lots which abut Winchester Road have the Community Development (CD) foundation component. The general plan amendment was proposed in 2009 as part of the general plan initiation process and county staff recommended the initiation of potential general plan amendment proceedings.
