Draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration 17-02
Dogwood Road at Villa Avenue 330 AC Site
Annexation EC 17-02, GPA 17-02, COZ 17-02
The project consists of 330 acres of land located at the southeast corner of Dogwood Road and Villa Avenue in an unincorporated area of Imperial County adjacent to the City of El Centro.  The project would annex the site into the City of El Centro, pre-zone the site from County A2U (General Agriculture-Urban Area) to City General Manufacturing, and amend the General Plan to designate the site from Planned Industrial/Low Density Residential uses to General Manufacturing uses.  No specific development is proposed at this time, but future development at the site is anticipated to include infrastructure improvements and design features in order to meet regulatory requirements and provide sufficient infrastructure to serve the
future development.  
Imperial Avenue Extension Project
The project consists of the extension of Imperial Avenue from I-8 to McCabe Road. The proposed 1.36­ mile roadway extension would function as a 4-lane divided arterial (with left turn lane) from I-8 to Wake Avenue, a 2-lane arterial (with left turn lane) from Wake Avenue to Valleyview Avenue and a 2-lane arterial (without left turn lane) from Valleyview Avenue to McCabe Road. The project would introduce a median varying in width from 12 to 14 feet between I-8 and Danenberg Drive, and then consistently 12 feet in width from Danenberg Drive to McCabe Road. The project would construct a 5.5-foot sidewalk along the entire length of the eastern project boundary and would introduce native backing on both sides of the proposed roadway.

ICOE Annexation
The project consists of the annexation of approximately 80 acres of land and a Pre-Zone from County A2 (General Agriculture) to LU (Limited Use). A concurrent general plan amendment to change the land use designation from County Agriculture to Public Use is also proposed. The project consists of the construction of a 21,685-square foot administration building for the use of the Imperial County Office of Education. The project is located at the southwest corner of McCabe Road and Sperber Road and is further identified by Assessor’s Parcel Number 054-510-001.
