Kaiser Permanente Murrieta Valley Medical Center Program EIR
To accommodate growth in the City of Murrieta, Kaiser Permanente proposed a five-phase project to build a new medical center to include 254 beds, 2,681 parking spaces, and retail and commercial uses.
- Kaiser Permanente
- Murrieta, California
- 37.6-acre site
- 824,000 square feet of medical facilities
Since hospital uses were not allowed on the site, Kaiser Permanente proposed a Specific Plan Amendment to allow for hospital and hospital-related facilities as well as greater height, floor area ratio, and updated design standards.
We prepared a Program EIR and associated technical studies in accordance with the City’s CEQA procedures. Key issues we analyzed included biology, cultural resources, aesthetics, air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology and water quality, land use and planning, noise, cumulative effects, growth inducement, and traffic circulation.
