LSA prepared the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the World Logistics Center (WLC) project on 3,918 acres south of State Route 60, east of Redlands Boulevard, west of Gilman Springs Road, and north of the San Jacinto Wildlife Area. The project proposed a maximum of 41.4 million square feet of “high-cube logistics” warehouse distribution uses classified as “Logistics Development” and 200,000 square feet (approximately 0.5 percent) of warehousing-related uses classified as “Light Logistics” on 2,710 acres within the WLC Specific Plan. A new Specific Plan was adopted by the Moreno Valley City Council in August 2015 to govern development of the WLC for the 2,710 acres within the Specific Plan. A separate zoning amendment was also processed and adopted to rezone 1,104 acres for open space and public facilities uses and to incorporate the Specific Plan into the City’s Zoning Map. The project also included pre-annexation zoning for an 85-acre parcel of land within the Gilman Springs area.

The project was highly controversial because of its size, and challenges included providing an accurate analysis of the increase in truck and vehicle trips on the area roadways and the increase in traffic-related noise and air quality emissions, including diesel. In addition, the project is located north and adjacent to the San Jacinto Wildlife Area, and there are concerns about the effects of the project on foraging habitat for birds and water quality from project runoff. Challenges also included working with and organizing the technical analysis of nine separate consultants.
