Proposed Del Rio Hills Planned Unit Development

The Del Rio Hills project site (commonly known as the Esperson property) is located in the City of Rio Vista on approximately 505 acres immediately west of downtown Rio Vista, south of State Route 12, east of Amerada Road, and north of unincorporated Solano County. The project is proposed as a Planned Unit Development (PUD), designed to be a mixed-use community which would include a range of residential uses, commercial uses, public facilities, school, parks, and open space. In order to effectively review the potential environmental affects of the project , an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is being prepared. A Draft EIR was prepared for the project and has been available for public review.  In order to ensure the public had adequate time to review the report and make comments, the comment period was extended for a full month. In order to read the Executive Summary of the Draft EIR, please Click Here. Complete copies of the Draft EIR are available for review City Hall, One Main Street, Rio Vista and the Solano County Public Library, 44 South Second Street, Rio Vista.
