Notice of Intent To Adopt A Mitigated Negative Declaration For South Milliken Distribution Center Project

The City of Eastvale intends to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for the “South Milliken Distribution Center” project (Planning Project No. PLN17-20013).  The proposed project site involves two parcels located on the northeast corner of South Milliken and State Route 60 off-ramp, in Eastvale, Riverside County, California (Assessor’s Parcel Numbers 156-030-001 and -002). Total area of the project site is approximately 15.8 acres.

The proposed project includes the following:

A General Plan Amendment from General Commercial Retail (CR) to Light Industrial (LI) for the entire project site consisting of two parcels totaling 15.8 acres; and

A Change of Zone from Scenic Highway Commercial (C-P-S) to Manufacturing Medium (M-M) for the northern parcel of approximately 12.5 acres; and

A Major Development Review for the development of an approximately 273,636-square foot warehouse building and associated site improvements.

An Initial Study (IS) was completed in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Based upon the information contained in the IS and pursuant to the requirements of CEQA, it has been determined that this project as proposed, revised, or mitigated will not have a significant impact on the environment. The approval of the project would incorporate a combination of project design features, standard conditions and requirements, and specific mitigation measures that will reduce any potential impacts to the environment to a less than significant level.

EASTVALE: Here We Grow Again

 

eastvale park mayor addresses crowd

By K.P. Sander and Jennifer Madrigal

Eastvale – The brand new Eastvale Community Park opened on Saturday, March 8, to a crowd of excited Eastvale residents. Representatives from the Eastvale Mustangs JAAF and Cheer, AYSO Soccer, Empire Soccer, Chivas Soccer, CrossFit Eastvale, and many others came out to promote their businesses. JCSD had demonstrations from various programs going on which kept both children and adults actively engaged throughout the day. Even with the dreadful Santa Ana winds, the event was a success.

The 160-acre parcel on the northwest corner of Limonite and Hamner Avenues is the ‘Cat’s Pajamas’ right now as far as real estate goes in the City of Eastvale. The massive property, owned by Dairyman, Brad Leal, has been the focus of discussion by the City Council, and even Eastvale citizens. Further exploration of the vision for the Leal Property was to be addressed at the City Council meeting on March 26, but discussion on the Specific Plan was approved to be continued to a later date. Stay tuned.

Ponino’s Pizzarena (located in the Ralph’s shopping center next door to the newly opened Soccer Wearhouse) opened without fanfare on Thursday, March 13 so employees could get into top form prior to the grand opening – coming soon; however, feel free to stop in for some hot, cheesy pizza right now.

You may have noticed that the Auto Zone at Archibald and Schleisman is now open. Still to come in that shopping center is Starbucks (gotta have one on every corner, right?), Fantastic Sam’s, Mes Amies Hair and Nails, Dentistry with Nihar Tanna DDS, Juice It Up, and the Great Harvest Bread Company (if you are not familiar with this business, you are in for a real treat).

 

The City of Eastvale has so much to be proud of, and so much to look forward to. The City is working on entryway monuments and directional signs that will be a beautiful welcome for citizens and visitors in the future. Yorba Elementary is planning its grand opening for July 6, 2015. And our second fire station will benefit our City next year as well.

 

EASTVALE – Here We Grow Again (Update)

BY KP SANDERS

Eastvale – It seems like you can’t drive on any main street in the City of Eastvale without seeing a significant construction project underway.  If you’ve been following this article, you know that our beautiful City, already home to more than 57,000 residents, is in the process of building out the majority of the open land still available.

Our population will increase through the hundreds of homes being constructed throughout the City, and jobs will become available through new businesses – with revenue generated through both key components of a thriving metropolis.  It’s exciting to see the transformation of Eastvale, especially if you have been here for a while.  It almost makes the few cows you see here and there seem quaint, instead of being responsible for the successful agricultural Dairyland it was decades ago.  But time marches on and progress continues for Eastvale.

Auto Zone at Archibald and Schleisman

As decisions are still being made for one of the biggest pieces of acreage, the Leal property on the northwest corner of Limonite and Hamner avenues, other projects are nearing completion.  Auto Zone and Starbucks, at Archibald and Schleisman, look to be opening their doors soon.

Desi Arnaz Ranch

The Desi ‘Arnaz Ranch’ located behind the Desi Collection Models at Estancia East and West

The beautiful new homes, Estancia East and West, located at Citrus and Granja Vista del Rio just opened their stunning model homes.  The Desi ‘Arnaz Ranch’ home is visible from the models, directly behind the Desi Collection model.  This is perhaps the most charming of all the new homes and an obvious tribute to Mr. Arnaz’ love of Spanish style architecture, with equestrian and musical décor abundant throughout.

There are a few new businesses coming to Eastvale.  Look for Tio’s Tacos and Cellular Repair to open soon in the Gateway Center (next to Pick Up Stix); and Boba2Go Coffee and Tea (next to Albertson’s).
