Environmental ReviewOak Glen Creek Specific Plan EIR

Introduction

Project Title: Oak Glen Creek Specific Plan, Case No. 16-048/SP

Lead Agency Name and Address: City of Yucaipa, 34272 Yucaipa Blvd., Yucaipa, CA 92399

Contact Person and Phone Number: Benjamin Matlock, (909) 797-2489, ext. 261

Project Location: The Oak Glen Creek Specific Plan site is approximately 115.6 acres in northern-central Yucaipa. The project site is irregularly shaped and bounded by Oak Glen Road to the north, Bryant Street to the east, generally 2nd Street and existing single-family residences to the west, and a natural slope to the south that abuts single-family residences.

Project Description

The Oak Glen Creek Specific Plan is a long-term guide for development of the project site to accommodate three major components—the Residential District (47.7 acres), the Open Space District (57.6 acres), and the Innovation District (6.7 acres). To accommodate the new development, the proposed project would provide flood attenuation and sediment reduction to alleviate existing downstream flooding along Wilson Creek, thus providing protection for private properties, roadways, and other public infrastructure. The proposed realignment of Wilson Creek and channelization of Oak Glen Creek into a retention basin would increase stormwater retention capability, increase groundwater recharge, and improve downstream water quality. Buildout of the Specific Plan area would allow approximately 200 single-family residential units and 20,000 square feet of nonresidential development. Flood control improvements (i.e., detention basin) and naturalized open space are located in the southern portion of the site.
