Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Renaissance Specific Plan?
The proposed project is located within the previously approved Renaissance Specific Plan (RSP) planning area, south of Interstate 210 (I-210), west of Ayala Drive, east of Alder Avenue, and north of Baseline Road. The goal of the RSP Amendment is the relocation of business and industrial uses to the west of Linden Avenue, relocating all residential land uses and the public park to the east of the Linden Avenue, and implementation of the Renaissance Marketplace retail development (505,000 square feet) and industrial/warehouse development for Planning Area 108 (4,000,000 square feet). Related updates to the Renaissance Specific Plan text and figures are required based upon the revised land use plan.
2. Will the Specific Plan affect the environment?
The project requires the preparation of additional environmental analysis to ensure land use changes would not result in new or previously unidentified environmental impacts. The City of Rialto studied the environmental effects of the project including air quality, traffic and noise and prepared a document called a Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (DSEIR) that lists all of the environmental studies and explains all impacts. The DSEIR identified significant effects associated with the proposed project that cannot be mitigated to levels that are less than significant in the following areas: Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
