Staff is currently reviewing a development application from Decron properties to develop the remaining 42 units within the Reserve at Chino Hills (formerly Village Crossings) apartment complex that was approved by the County in 1987. The project is located on a sliver of vacant property between the existing Village Crossing apartment complex and State Highway 71. The proposal includes 14 three-story triplex units, 28 two-story townhouse units, 42 detached two-car garages, and 21 guest stalls.
A CEQA review is required for the proposed project. Staff requested proposals for preparation of the CEQA documents from four firms on the City's approved On-call Environmental, Planning, and Related Consultant Services RFQ list. ECORP was selected to prepare the required Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Project in accordance with CEQA and the City’s CEQA implementation policies and guidelines, including the preparation of the necessary CEQA documentation and related technical studies.
ECORP was selected because the firm has a high level of experience and expertise with preparing related environmental documents, including projects within the City. Their proposed cost is competitive and consistent with the cost for recent environmental reviews in the City by other consultants.
