Attention Montclair Community

Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any preexisting limitations imposed under the Montclair Municipal Code. This City of Montclair Community Guidance is based on provisions of Dine–In Restaurants Guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health updated on Thursday, July 2, 2020 and Guidance on Closures of Sectors in Response to Covid–19 by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health published on July 1, 2020.


In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.


On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.

Mission Boulevard and Ramona Avenue Business Park Project

A proposal to develop approximately 27.74-acres at the northwest corner of Mission Boulevard and Ramona Avenue, with an eight-building Project, approximately 514,269 square feet in total area.  The buildings are designed to be flexible industrial space well suited to serve the requirements of a wide spectrum of industrial tenants, as well as associated improvements, including loading docks, tractor trailer stalls, passenger vehicle parking spaces, and street, sidewalk, and landscape improvements (see Figure 2, Site Plan).  Currently, the Project site is developed with a drive-in theater/swap-meet use and a separate automobile-related use.

 Initial Study  NOP for DRAFT EIR



The Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the proposed Montclair Place District Specific Plan (MPDSP) is complete and available for review below.

The FEIR presents comments on the Draft EIR (DEIR) prepared for the MPDSP, responds in writing to comments on environmental issues, and revises the DEIR as necessary to provide additional clarity.

During the 45-day public review period for the DEIR, July 10, 2020 to August 25, 2020, the City received five comment letters.  The Planning Commission reviewed the project on August 10, 2020, and provided another opportunity to gather public comment on the DEIR.  A list of the comments received, a transcript of the Planning Commission Meeting, copies of the comment letters received, and responses to comments are included in Chapter 2, Responses to Comments, of this FEIR.

Changes to the Draft EIR Montclair Place SP MMRP



The proposed Montclair Place District Specific Plan (MPDSP) represents the vision for approximately 104 acres of land that includes the existing Montclair Place Mall and surrounding commercial properties as defined by maps within the EIR document.   The MPDSP would assign and create new land use zones for parcels within the Plan Area and provide development standards and architectural guidelines to guide development in the Plan Area through 2040.  A key feature of the MPDSP would provide for the demolition of all or a portion of the existing Mall, some or all appurtenant free-standing outbuildings, and portions of the existing surface parking lots and parking structure to construct a pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use downtown district, with structured parking facilities through a series of planned phases.

The Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) prepared for the project evaluates potential environmental effects associated with the proposed MPDSP.  The EIR is available for a 45-day public comment period that commences on July 10, 2020 and concludes on August 24, 2020.  Please submit comments on the environmental analysis in the Draft EIR to the address provided below no later than 6:00 p.m. on August 24, 2020.
