A public hearing before the Riverside County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Sept. 12 is expected to result in the approval of a multi-million-dollar health care facility to be constructed at the southwest corner of Knabe Road and Retreat Parkway.

Riverside Medical Clinic, with seven offices in Riverside County, plans to build a three-story, 96,352-square-foot building with 484 parking spaces.

The county has fast-tracked the project which streamlines land-use approvals and the permit process, and allows it to bypass a Planning Commission public hearing. To qualify for fast track consideration, a project must meet one of the following:

  • Create a minimum of 40 permanent, full-time jobs
  • Invest a total of at least $5 million in land, buildings and/or equipment
  • Produce $12.5 million in taxable annual sales

The public can comment on the project at the Sept. 12  hearing or email comments to:
Project Planner Dave Alvarez, dalvarez@rivco.org

Comments should be sent no later than Monday, Sept. 11. Alvarez also can be reached at 951-955-3728.

Riverside Medical Clinic, with seven offices in Riverside County, plans to build a multi-million-dollar health care facility at the southwest corner of Knabe Road and Retreat Parkway.

The three-story, 97,000-square-foot building will have 486 parking spaces, and entrances and exits from both streets. Full access is planned from Retreat Parkway. Knabe Road will have a right and left turn into the parking lot and a right turn from the parking lot, but left turns on to Knabe will not be allowed. Neither roadway will have a traffic signal.

Forty physicians are planned to staff the facility and services offered will include internal medicine/family practice, cardiology, pulmonology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, general surgery, neurology, OB/gyn, ophthamology, optometry, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngology, audiology, pediatrics, plastic surgery, podiatry, rheumatology, urgent care/occupational medicine and urology.

Diagnostic and patient support services planned are out-patient surgery, cardiac and pulmonology testing, radiology/imaging, laboratory, pharmacy, health education, a cafeteria and clinical trials/research. Clinic hours will be from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends and holidays.

Riverside Medical Clinic Temescal Valley will replace the current facility on Magnolia Avenue in Corona. It’s expected to open in summer 2018.

Congratulations to Jerry Sincich and the We Are Temescal Valley Development Committee members who, in meeting with developers over the past three years, have stressed the need for medical services in Temescal Valley.

    Do you know what may get done regarding the mess that is the Knabe/Weirick intersection in the morning? It is beyond comprehension the way some people believe they can manipulate that intersection to avoid waiting in line on Knabe like every other law abiding driver. There needs to be something done about the illegal U-turns made on Retreat Parkway & N. Weirick. Who do we complain to to get something done?

      The county announced today they are putting in delineators (lane separators) to temporarily ease the situation until a permanent fix can be made. CHP also is stepping up enforcement.
