The proposed World Logistics Center (WLC) project area is approximately 3,818 acres and includes a new 2,610 acre Specific Plan area. The project is envisioned to accommodate up to 40.6 million square feet of high cube industrial warehouse distribution development and related uses. Additionally, a General Plan Amendment is proposed, which would change certain General Plan Elements that currently exist for Community Development, Parks, Recreation and Open Space, Circulation, Safety, and Conservation. Approval of the project would result in a repeal of the current Moreno Highlands Specific Plan No. 212-1.

The developer has also requested approval of Tentative Parcel Map No. 36457 for 26 parcels, as well as approval of a Development Agreement covering the properties controlled by Highland Fairview.
