NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Existing Land Use: Waste Recycling Facility; General Plan Land use Designation: Manufacturing; Zoning Designation: M-1 Light Industrial
The project would involve a voluntary lot merger of two parcels involving acquisition of the 0.5-acre nursery parcel and demolition of its on-site structures, and construction of a new metal roof structure to cover the existing uncovered waste recycling/transfer operation. The roof structure is proposed to cover an area of 75,300 square feet, including the reconfigured recovery, sorting, and transfer equipment and operations. Truck queuing and scales will remain outside the roof structure. A separate 1,187 square foot one-story restroom/locker room building and patio area is also proposed for employees. The project includes construction of a 14-foot tall wall along the eastern and northern boundaries of the project site. Drainage improvements will capture some storm water runoff from roofs and paved areas for onsite tire washing and dust suppression, and provide for runoff directed to the storm drain along Quarantina. The site cover and drainage improvements are intended to improve runoff water quality in accordance with current regulations. Landscaping is proposed to be installed around the perimeter of the site for visual screening. Signage would be provided at the facility in accordance with current regulations. The project proposes to improve site access and circulation by (1) creating a single main entrance and exit for incoming load traffic off of Quarantina Street at Mason Street; (2) separating the tipping areas for self-haul trucks and larger commercial trucks; and (3) creating an internal loop road so that large transport trucks can enter off the Yanonali Street cul-de-sac, travel through the property, and exit at Mason Street. The project would provide eighteen uncovered parking spaces for employees on the site along the southern property boundary. Operational capacity of the facility is proposed to be increased from the current permitted maximum of 500 Tons Per Day (TPD) to 750 TPD. Existing hours of operation are 6:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday and 6:00 a.m. - 4:00p.m Saturday. These hours would continue for waste receiving, but would extend to 10:00 p.m. Monday-Friday for onsite waste processing waste transfer. The facility currently employs 36 persons, and anticipates potentially increasing employees by up to four (4) with the project capacity change. The duration of the project construction process is estimated at 11 months, with earthwork for site preparation estimated at 1,500 cubic yards of soil, balanced on site.
