Draft Environmental Impact Report
Section 4.13 Population, Housing, and Employment 4.13-1
This section identifies population and housing conditions within the City of Moreno Valley andaddresses potential impacts that may result from the construction and operation of the proposed WLCproject. The analysis is based in part on population and housing projections identified by theCalifornia Department of Finance (DOF), Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG),as well as information contained in the City’s General Plan.For the reader’s reference, this EIR and each of the technical reports and analyses contained hereinhave been written to address a series of planning entitlements, which affect several separate,adjacent and related properties. The overall project site covers 3,918 acres in the Rancho Belagoarea of the City of Moreno Valley. It includes 3,814 acres of land, which is the subject of variousentitlements, plus 104 acres of land affected by off-site improvements needed to support theproposed development. The proposed entitlements are summarized below.A General Plan Amendment is proposed covering 3,814 acres, which redesignates approximately 71percent of the area (2,710 acres) for logistics warehousing and the remaining 29 percent (1,104acres) for permanent open space and public facilities. The following elements of the General Plan areincluded in the proposed Amendment: Community Development (land use); Circulation; Parks,Recreation, and Open Space; Safety; Conservation; and the General Plan Goals and Objectives.A new Specific Plan will be adopted to govern development of the World Logistics Center for the2,710 acres. A separate zoning amendment will also be processed and adopted to rezone 1,104acres for open space and public facilities uses and to incorporate the Specific Plan into the City’sZoning Map.In addition to the General Plan Amendment, Specific Plan, and Zone Change, the project includes aTentative Parcel Map covering 1,539 acres (property owned by the project applicant, HighlandFairview) within the project site. This subdivision map is for financing purposes only and will notconfer any development rights to the property owner.The project includes pre-annexation zoning for an 85-acre parcel of land within the project area.Finally, a Development Agreement between the City and Highland Fairview (the project applicant) isincluded as one of the project entitlements.

The jobs-to-housing ratio measures the extent to which job opportunities in a given geographic areaare sufficient to meet the employment needs of area residents. This ratio identifies the number of jobsavailable in a given region compared to the number of housing units in the same region. For example,a region with a jobs-to-housing factor of 1.5 would indicate that 1.5 jobs exist for every housing unitwithin that region.
