Riverside has filed a legal challenge to a Jurupa Valley development that would lie directly in the path of a power line project the two cities have been fighting over for several years. Jurupa Valley officials in March approved the Vernola Marketplace Apartments, a 397-unit project on 17.4 acres on Pat's Ranch Road north of 68th Street, on the eastern edge of Interstate 15. The development would block the planned route of the Riverside Transmission Reliability Project, a joint venture of Riverside Public Utilities and Southern California Edison to build a 10-mile, 230,000-kilovolt transmission line, plus substations, transmission towers and poles along the eastern I-15 corridor.
