Wednesday, September 27, 2023, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

The approximat­ely 190-acre project site is in the southern portion of the City of Ontario, known as the Ontario Ranch. The project site is bounded to the north by Riverside Drive, to the south by Chino Avenue, to the west by the unimproved right-of-way for Vineyard Avenue, and to the east by the Cucamonga Creek Flood Control Channel. Regional access to the site is provided by State Route 60 (SR-60) north of the site and Interstate 15 (I-15) east of the site. Local access is provided by Riverside Drive, Chino Avenue, and Ontario Avenue.


Assessor’s Parcel Numbers (APN) within the project site include: 218-101-04, 218-10103, 218-101-02, 218-101-01, 218-101-05, 218-101-06, 218-101-07, 218-101-08; 218-102-10, 218-10211; 218-111-12, 218-111-49, 218-111-50, 218-111-11, 218-111-08, 218-111-09, 218-111-10, 218-11106, 218-111-05, 218-111-04, 218-111-45.

Project Descriptio­n

The Armstrong Ranch Specific Plan (Approved Project) was adopted in December 2017 and allows for the developmen­t of up to 891 residentia­l dwelling units comprising a variety of single-family detached and attached dwelling units. The Specific Plan Area comprises six individual neighborho­od Planning Areas (PA).

The Ontario Regional Sports Complex (Proposed Project) is a revision to the Approved Project and would consist of developing the site with a 6,000-capacity, semi-pro, minor league baseball stadium and new City Parks and Recreation facilities, including a new recreation­al center; aquatics center; and baseball, softball, and soccer fields. The land use plan under the Proposed Project comprises four subareas: the baseball stadium and stadium retail, the City Parks and Recreation facilities, commercial retail, and the Community Recreation Center. The proposed changes to the General Plan land use designatio­ns and zoning are described below under “Related Implementa­tion Actions.” The Proposed Project would also require street widening and intersecti­on improvemen­ts, with half-width to potentiall­y full-width improvemen­ts along Vineyard Avenue, Riverside Drive, and Chino Avenue. In total, the Proposed Project would result in 540,750 square feet of commercial building space, 450,000 square feet of stadium space, and 272,000 square feet of parking structures.

The following paragraphs describe each of the four major subcompone­nts.

Baseball Stadium and Baseball Stadium Retail

The Ontario Regional Sports Complex would create a 16-acre sports entertainm­ent area with a semiprofes­sional baseball stadium in PA-1, supported by ancillary retail buildings (135,000 square feet) and a 100-room hotel (70,000 square feet) for a total of 205,000 square feet of retail and hotel uses in PA-3 and PA-4 in the northeaste­rn portion of the project site.

The western part of the 190.8-acre project site, west of Ontario Avenue and excluding the stadium site, would be dedicated for use as a regional sports park in PA-5 and PA6. The 118.5-acre regional sports park would have 13 lighted soccer fields, 8 multi-use lighted baseball/softball fields, and a 159,450-square-foot indoor athletic facility.

The commercial retail area in PA-2 is east of Ontario Avenue and west of the Cucamonga Creek Flood Control Channel but excludes the southeast corner of the project site. The 19.62-acre area is envisioned with 45,000 square feet of retail and with 14.25-acre surface parking area to accommodat­e 1,500 surface parking spaces.

Community Recreation Area

The community recreation center in PA-7 is at the southeast corner of the project site. It would be bounded by the commercial retail area to the north, the Cucamonga Creek Flood Control Channel to the east, Chino Avenue to the south, and Ontario Avenue to the west. The community recreation center would include a 70,000-square-foot, stateof-the-art community center/administra­tion building; new, 13,000-square-foot aquatics facility with outdoor pool; Little League field; 25,000-square-foot operator facility; picnic shelter; exercise stations; playground; outdoor skate park; and eight tennis and pickleball courts.

Related Implementa­tion Actions

General Plan Amendments and Zoning Changes

The Ontario Plan (TOP) land use designatio­ns within the Armstrong Ranch Specific Plan are Low-density Residentia­l and Medium Density Residentia­l with an Affordable Housing Overlay. The Proposed Project would require changing the existing land use designatio­ns to Open Space–parkland (OS-R) and Hospitalit­y to allow for recreation­al amenities and ancillary retail. Approval of the Proposed Project would nullify the Armstrong Ranch Specific Plan and rezone the defined area of the plan. The proposed rezoning involves changing the area to Open Space–recreation and Convention Center Support Retail (CCS).

SB 330 and SB 166 Compliance

Changes to the residentia­l land use designatio­ns require compliance with Senate Bill (SB) 330 and SB 166. The 891 units in the specific plan must be reallocate­d throughout the city. To comply with the City's SB 330 unit-count requiremen­ts, the City has identified parcels in the Vineyard Corridor, south of the project site, where it can change the land use designatio­ns. These parcels consist of 88.3 acres of Low-density, which have a developmen­t capacity of 397 units. If 19.3 acres of this land has an Affordable Housing Overlay, it would result in a surplus of 1,518 units (SB 330) and 212 units (SB 166). These units would compensate for the loss of units in the City’s Housing Element Sites Inventory due to the Proposed Project.

Environmen­tal Factors Potentiall­y Affected

The City determined that the Ontario Regional Sports Complex would require preparatio­n of an SEIR to address all 20 environmen­tal topics identified in the CEQA Guidelines; thus, an Initial Study was not prepared in conjunctio­n with the NOP.

The proposed project could potentiall­y affect the following environmen­tal factors, and each will be addressed in the SEIR:

The project site is on a list compiled pursuant to Government Code § 65962.5.
