Proposed community would mean too many homes, residents say

Residents of a community near Hemet are battling a proposed development that they believe would bring too many houses to their rural community.

Meadowview, which has been in the planning stages for four years, would be built in Reinhart Canyon between the Four Seasons, an upscale retirement community, and Maze Stone Village, a mobile home park for seniors, according to a report in The Press-Enterprise.

The developer, Reinhart Canyon Associates, wants to carve up 177 acres into 332 residential lots, the smallest of which would cover 3,600 square feet. That works out to about one single-family home per half acre.

Originally, the land was zoned one home per five acres, and one home per 10 acres near hillsides. Some residents want to return to that zoning density, the report stated.

The site is also considered a hazardous fire area, and better access for firefighters must be established before the project can be approved.

The Riverside County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to discuss the project Wednesday, but it will not make a ruling. The session will allow both sides to express their views and for board members to ask questions, the report stated.
