During the Jan. 14 city council meeting Community Development Director Lawrence Mainez reported that the city filled its documents last week for the purchase and sale of County Flood Control property on the north side of Greenspot Road east of State Route 210 and escrow is expected to close in about a month.
This will allow the city to get the property in the hands of developers, Mainez said.
The city is purchasing the property from San Bernardino County Flood Control and selling it to TREH Partners for the development of the Greenspot Village and Marketplace, a mixed-use plan approved by the city in 2013.
The sale and escrow was stalled when protected kangaroo rats were discovered on a western portion of the property in 2018.
The portion of the property containing the rats has now been separated from the remainder and will undergo separate mitigation processes.
