HIGHLAND >> The Highland City Council has approved plans for the Mediterra residential development.

The Mediterra Planned Development, proposed by Rancho Cucamonga-based Sunland Communities LLC, would include 200 low-density residential lots, 110 medium-density units, six estate lots, two parks, landscaping and a water quality management basin on about 178 acres on Greenspot Road, east of Santa Paula Street.

The property is near the East Valley Water District and is directly south of the San Bernardino National Forest.

The land is owned by Calvary Chapel of San Bernardino with 59 acres on the west, Greenspot Corridor LLC with 119 acres on the east and the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District with 2.6 acres along Greenspot Road.

The Highland Planning Commission last month approved the project’s planned development document, General Plan amendment, zone change and related documents.

After a lengthy discussion and numerous questions for city staff and the developer, the council voted to approve the project on Tuesday.

“I think this project will be one that people will really enjoy,” Councilman Sam Racadio said. “It’s got so many amenities to it. It’s a great location. It’s going to be beautiful and there’s been a lot of work put into it.”
