Land Use

Answer

The proposed community is located within the unincorporated County of San Bernardino and is directly adjacent to City of Chino limits. Preliminary meetings have been held with the County, and they have assured the City that the property could be annexed into the City without the need for annexing any other properties.

Answer

No. Measure H requested a change of zoning to a density of 8.6 units per acre with up to 180 total homes, including micro-lots and townhomes. Chino Francis Estates is requesting all single-story, single family detached homes at a density of 2.92 home per gross acre (3.25 homes per net acre) without a change of zoning. Also, the proposed project’s annexation into the City of Chino would be limited to the project-area only. No other property owners will be forced into the city.

Economic Impact

Answer

Yes! The project will generate a positive fiscal impact on the city. Future residents are expected to generate more than an estimated $1.9 million in annual recurring retail sales after build out. Additionally, the project will provide for local jobs and pay over $2.4 million in fees to the city for future city infrastructure and fund other local agencies such as the school district.

Answer

Chino Francis Estates was designed with community input to complement the surrounding neighborhoods of Chino, with increased open space, reduced density and a move to all single-story homes. The project will clean up a blighted property, and new, high-quality homes will help enhance local property values.

Community

Answer

No. An independent traffic engineer determined that the proposed community would not have a significant impact on the area. According to the traffic study, the project adds less than 32 a.m. trips and 43 p.m. trips during peak time periods. This equates to about one car every 1.5 minutes between 4-6 p.m., and less during the morning peak period.

Answer

Yes. All utilities and roads are located adjacent to the proposed community site. Additionally, the proposed community will connect to existing sewer facilities in Yorba and will source its water from a local supplier. Additionally, the project will pay over two million dollars in fees to improve the local infrastructure.

Answer

In 2017, the project team has worked diligently to engage the local community and collect feedback on the proposed project. And in 2019, we are more committed than ever to get the truth about the project out to the local community. The team has met with more than 100 community members, the local elementary school and the Chamber of Commerce, along with other key community groups. We ask you to please pay close attention to the facts. There is a group out there that will distort the truth in order to make their point, don't fall victim to fake news!

Answer

The project team has met with adjacent homeowners and mitigated most issues and concerns. To maintain the privacy of existing residents, Chino Francis Estates will include a 6-foot high wall with enhanced landscaping around the perimeter of the community. The community has moved the orientation of the project slightly east in order to add additional buffer to the west property line, as well as add additional vegetation in certain areas.

Answer

The project team has met with local schools to discuss the project and get their feedback. The local schools are in need of additional students, so the project will not create any overcrowding. In total, Chino Francis Estates will contribute more than $2.4 million in development fees to the City, local agencies and Chino schools.

Answer

Yes! The planning team is working to produce a project that accurately reflects the wants and needs of the Chino community. As such, the project team has held more than 50 community meetings and neighborhood walks in the area to collect feedback on the proposed project and answer questions. Feedback collected from residents was thoughtfully considered by the project team and ultimately resulted in a move to all single-story homes, adding RV storage, increased open space and buffers, and ultimately reduced density.
