Notice of Availability of an Environmental Impact Report

I-15 Corridor Campus Master Plan

Public Notice:  Pursuant to the State of California Public Resources Code Section 21165 and the Guidelines for Implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act as amended to date, notice is hereby given that the Mt. San Jacinto Community College District (MSJCCD), as Lead Agency, is circulating for public review a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the I-15 Corridor Campus Master Plan.

Project Title:  I-15 Corridor Campus Master Plan

Project Location:  The 80.32-acre Project Site is located at the northeast corner of Clinton Keith Road and Salida Del Sol, City of Wildomar, Riverside County. The Project Site is bordered by La Estrella Street to the north, Clinton Keith Road to the south, Salida Del Sol to the west, and Elizabeth Lane and single-family residential units to the east.

Project Description:  MSJCCD is proposing a master planned community college, which would provide college and adult education facilities for an enrollment of approximately 15,000 part-time or 10,000 full-time equivalent students and approximately 400 staff at ultimate buildout. The Proposed Project is anticipated to be constructed in four phases totaling approximately 495,000 gross square feet of building area: Phase I) a new center template building; Phase II) a student services building, a library and technology building, and a multipurpose building; Phase III) a general classroom building and a science buildings; and Phase IV) a general classroom building, a STEM building, a maintenance & operations building, a gymnasium/fitness building, and track and field/soccer field. Full buildout is tentatively scheduled to be accomplished sometime between 2035 and 2038. Other campus supporting facilities would include approximately 1,883 surface parking stalls, driveways, arrival/drop-off area, tennis courts, student green, courtyard, pedestrian bridge, community playfields, a community park, and linear stream park and trails, etc. No outdoor recreational nighttime lighting would be installed and MSJCCD proposes to preserve approximately 42 acres of the most valuable habitat on the Project Site in its current condition.
