A controversial warehouse project planned just outside rural Cherry Valley will move forward after a Tuesday, Oct. 17, vote by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors.
The 4-1 vote, with Kevin Jeffries opposed, changes the zoning to allow warehouses at the property at Cherry Valley Boulevard and the 10 Freeway. It also upholds the environmental impact report.
Developer Shopoff Realty Investments has touted the 1.8 million-square-foot San Gorgonio Crossing industrial distribution center because of the number of jobs that would be created, improved transportation corridors and the open and park space that will surround the warehouses.
Foes fear increased traffic, poor air quality from 600 truck trips per day and diminished property values.
