MIRA LOMA, Calif. (AP) — A proposed mega-warehouse development in Riverside County will move forward, but project developers will have to monitor air quality as part of a settlement with the state of California and environmentalists.
An environmental group filed a lawsuit two years ago against the massive project, saying officials failed to adequately take into account the impact on residents' health. The group feared it would lead to increased traffic by diesel-belching trucks. The state attorney general's office joined the action.
State prosecutors say Thursday that the developers have agreed to install air filtration systems in residents' homes and monitor air quality in the region.
The proposed Mira Loma Commerce Center calls for 1.4 million square feet of warehouses and industrial buildings on 60 acres of land.
