1204 Poplar Drive ECRM Office,
General Plan Amendment 18-01 and Change of Zone 18-01
El Centro Regional Medical Center (ECRMC) has requested the rezoning of a 10,860 square foot property at 1204 Poplar Drive from R1 (Single –family residential) to Limited Use (LU). Concurrent with the re-zone, a General Plan Amendment from Low Density Residential to Public use is being proposed to amend the Land Use Map for consistency with the Zoning Map. The proposed general plan amendment and change of zone would allow the existing 2,200 square-foot single-family residence to be converted to office space for ECRMC. The office space is proposed to be used by ECRMC administrative staff and will not be accessible to patients or the public. Presently, the residence houses ECRMC medical staff. No construction, demolition or other similar activities are proposed at the project site.
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.
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.
