Providing Vision & Direction
The Planning Department administers the City's General Plan, which provides the vision and direction for the City over a 20-year period.
In the City of Hesperia, the General Plan is the overarching guide in implementation of the Development Code, which defines development standards, and the Main Street and Freeway Corridor Specific Plan, which establishes zoning districts, throughout the City.
Ensuring Conformity & Compliance
Planning ensures proposed projects conform and comply with the City's development standards and the State's environmental and subdivision regulations. Ensuring compliance helps to preserve the environment and improve the quality of life within the City.
Planning works with other City divisions, such as Building and Safety, Fire and Engineering, as well as other governmental agencies, to ensure new development has adequate infrastructure and services. Planning also provides zoning and land use process and regulation information to the general public, including:
- Property and business owners
- Real estate agents

Dara Industrial Project
The Project proposes development of a single 750,000-square-foot industrial building. Of this total, 15,000 square feet would be dedicated to office uses associated with the industrial uses. The Project also includes two water retention basins to be located at the site’s northeasterly (0.6 acre) and southwesterly (2.0 acres) corners. The basins will reduce post development stormwater flows to levels similar to existing conditions. The Hesperia General Plan designates the Project site as Specific Plan (Main Street and Freeway Corridor Specific Plan). Within the Specific Plan, the site is zoned for Commercial/Industrial Business Park (CIBP) uses. This zone is intended to provide for service commercial, light industrial, light manufacturing, and industrial support uses, mainly conducted in enclosed buildings. The Project is conditionally permitted by the site’s existing land use designations. The Project does not propose or require any General Plan or Specific Plan land use modifications.

The proposed Project would provide 414,700 square feet of industrial/warehouse space and include associated improvements, such as loading docks, tractor-trailer stalls, passenger vehicle parking spaces, stormwater detention basins, and landscape area. It is anticipated that the facilities would be operated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. At this time, the project applicant does not anticipate leasing any portion of the buildings to a tenant that would require refrigerated space.
The approximately 17.87-acre Project site is located in the western part of the City, which is within the Victor Valley region of San Bernardino County (Figure 1, Project Location). The Project site is located on the southwest quadrant of I-15 and Main Street. The Project site is located south of Main Street, west of Cataba Road and Mesa Linda Street, north of I-15 and Poplar Street, and east of U.S. Highway 395 and Lassen Road. The Project site consists of two parcels: Assessor’s Parcel Numbers (APNs) 3064-581-04-0000 and 3064-581-05-0000. Specifically, the Project site is located in Section 22, Township 4 North, Range 5 West, as depicted on the U.S. Geological Survey Baldy Mesa, California 7.5-minute topographic quadrangle map. Regional access to the Project site is provided via I-15 and U.S. Highway 395.
Public Scoping Comment Period. The City has established a 30-day public scoping period from August 11, 2022, to September 9, 2022.

United States Cold Storage
This proposed project is an approximately 78.70-acre project, located on the east side of the US-395, bounded by Yucca Terrace Drive to the south and Avenal Street to the north.
The project would include one building on the northern portion of the project site that is proposed to be 515,334 square-feet. It would include both two-story and high bay warehousing areas and 31,594 square-feet of office space. The second building on the southern portion of the property is proposed to be a total of 531,434 square-feet and would include a two-story warehousing area and 31,594 square-feet of office space. Each building would also include a 71,352 square-foot loading dock for truck trailers that includes a 23,522 square-foot area for driver services. The maximum height of the two warehouse buildings is proposed to be approximately 150 feet.
The Proposed Project also includes a bioretention basin on the northeast corner of the site to capture and treat storm water. A solar array field is proposed in the east portion of the Project Site to generate approximately 2.35 MW to serve the facility; no energy generated would be sold to the grid.
The City has established a 30-day public scoping period. During the scoping period, the City’s intent is to disseminate Project information to the public and solicit comments from agencies, organizations, and interested parties, including nearby residents and business owners, regarding the scope and content of the environmental information to be included in the EIR, including mitigation measures or Project alternatives to reduce potential environmental effects.
