The Gateway Project

Another New Project Has Reared its Ugly Head

Riverside county is considering a project called Gateway Center.” This will be a two-and-a-half million square-foot (yes, you read that right) distribution center that will sit on the north side of Cherry Valley Blvd, just a little bit east of the 10 freeway. Follow the link to read the project report.

A distribution center is a giant warehouse that holds products waiting to be distributed to and from manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers, via truck. And – get this – this gigantic warehouse will have four hundred and twenty-eight loading docks!

How many trucks do you think can move in and out of all those loading docks? That could easily be hundreds of trucks per day, with a dozen concurrently at any given moment.

Imagine trying to get on or off the 10 freeway and having a dozen trucks in front of you, moving in and out of that center ... onto and off of Cherry Valley Blvd ... onto and off of those tiny freeway on- and off-ramps!

This could make Cherry Valley Blvd almost un-drivable!

And here’s the kicker: Because there are no houses near the proposed project, they don’t have to notify anybody of their intent to build this monstrosity.

This project is just in the beginning stages, and we must stop it in the bud.

Here is the email address for the County Planner: prull@rctlma.org. His name is Paul Rull. PLEASE send him an email stating your objections – it only takes a few minutes.

Or call him at 951-955-0972. Ask for Paul Rull.

Here are a few points you can make: Air quality … truck traffic … freeway exchange inadequate … not beneficial to a residential area … it will lower property values. I’m sure you can come up your own reasons why this thing should not be in our backyard.

Please do it today ... tomorrow may be too late.
