The North Eastern Sphere Annexation Proposal, or NESAP area, extends from Haven Avenue, easterly to the City's boundary with Fontana, and from the northerly City limits to the National Forest boundary.  The NESAP area contains a total of 4,388 acres, including 300 acres already within City limits and 4,088 acres in the City's Sphere of Influence.  This will include the development of a Specific Plan, General Plan Amendment, Zoning Map Amendment, Etiwanda North Specific Plan Amendment, and all related environmental documentation.  Initial NESAP considerations propose maintaining the northerly 3,176 acres as “conservation priority area”, and approximately 1,212 acres as “development priority area” in the southerly portion generally located between Milliken Avenue and Day Creek Avenue, north of Banyan Street.
