Short Outline
The Riverside County Integrated Project (RCIP) incorporates four components in a proactive approach to planning an urban region that is expected to double in size by the year 2020.
The population in Riverside County is expected to double from 1.5 million to 3 million by the year 2020. The county is one of the largest in the United States covering an area of 7,200 square miles; an area slightly smaller than Slovenia and slightly larger than Kuwait.

The Riverside County Integrated Project (RCIP) reveals the importance of factors, including the environment and the cooperation of all levels of government in the planning for a growing urban region. The RCIP breaks boundaries in regional planning in the state of California by integrating four planning components into a truly regional, comprehensive planning project. The first component of the RCIP is the County General Plan that addresses land use, circulation, housing, open space, conservation, safety, and noise. The Community and Environmental Transportation Acceptability Process (CETAP) plans for four new transportation corridors to provide access within the county and to surrounding regions. The Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP) is the third component. The MSHCP will protect up to 146 species with an open space corridor through Riverside County. And the Special Area Management Plan (SAMP) will create a balance between water resource management and economic development. The RCIP’s goals are to create a balanced and sustainable environment for Riverside County and to improve the quality of life in Riverside County’s communities.
