Riverside moving ahead with land-transfer plan

LA SIERRA: A developer will get the site and will clean up contamination on the parcel.

RIVERSIDE - The city is firming up plans to transfer 56 acres of city-owned land in La Sierra to a developer who has agreed to clean up contamination on the site.

Environmental consultants have estimated the cost of cleaning up the city's former Agricultural Park at $12 million to $14 million, according to Assistant City Manager Michael Beck. The city earlier had estimated the cost at $5 million.

The land between Crest and Rutledge avenues once was part of a military installation, and a sewer plant operated there from 1942 to 1965. In 2003, the city agreed to a land swap with developer Chuck Cox that would give him the land for a residential development. In turn, the city would receive 61 acres west of Riverside Municipal Airport for expansion of the city-owned Sky Links golf course.
