5,000 acre city proposed at Travertine Point
SPECIFIC PLAN NO. SP00375 (Travertine Point Specific Plan)
The Travertine Point Specific Plan is proposed by Black Emerald, LLC in consultation with the Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indians.
The Specific Plan area currently consists of approximately 5,131 acres of land of which 4,148 acres (approximately 81 percent) is within Riverside County, and 983 acres (approximately 19 percent) is within Imperial County. Approximately 1,419 acres (approximately 28 percent) of the total Specific Plan area consists of land located within the reservation of the Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indians; 785 acres within Riverside County and 643 acres within Imperial County.
The portions of the Specific Plan controlled by the Torres-Martinez will be processed under the requirements of the tribe and, as appropriate, will be subject to additional environmental reviews under the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) per 40 CFR 1501.5 because the Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indians are designated a sovereign nation.
The proposed project consists of a Specific Plan that would master-plan approximately 5,130 acres as a residential mixed-use community. This specific plan includes several residential or mixed-use colonies, each with its own mix of land uses.
The colonies included in the specific plan consist of (1) the Town Center, (2) the Resort and Marina, and (3) the Residential Colonies (Golf, East, and West).
The Travertine Point Specific Plan envisions 98 acres of commercial use including 100 residential units, 87 acres of mixed use development including 700 residential units, a 34 acre Business Park, 127 acres of resort and marina activities, 2,239 acres of residential uses containing 11,500 units representing various densities, styles and concepts, 276 acre golf course, 2,061 acres of open space, and 208 acres of roads. The total specific plan will contain 12,300 residential units when completed.
The plan will also contain a Cultural Resource Preserve which will celebrate the unique culture of the Torres-Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indians and their use of ancient Lake Cahuilla, as well as a Living Desert that will exhibit the unique flora and fauna that make up the lower Colorado desert and the Salton Sea.
