STAFF SUPPORTING INFORMATION:
The Nexus University Science Center project is located at the eastern terminus of Executive Drive, northwest of the La Jolla Village Drive/Interstate 805 interchange of the University Community Plan area. The proposed 9.6-acre project site consists of three undeveloped lots, each currently zoned RS-1-14 (Residential). However, the site is designated for “Scientific Research” use in the community plan. The project proposes a rezone from RS-1-14 (Residential) to IP-1-1 (Industrial Park), which would be consistent with the community plan land use designation, and to develop the entire 9.6-acre site with 191,456 square feet of new research and development use distributed in three new buildings on the three existing lots.
The project is classified as a priority project as defined by the City Storm Water Standards. The project is required to comply with the State Water Resources Control Board Order No. 92-08-DWQ (NPDES General Permit No. CAS0000002).
The Nexus University Science Center project is estimated to generate approximately 1,915 average daily trips. Mitigation for significant potential impacts is required and the project has been conditioned to provide the appropriate mitigation to reduce those impacts to a level of insignificance.
