Document Description
NOTE: Partial Recirculation This EIR considers the environmental effects of the motor sports complex and commercial project proposed by Tulare Motor Sports Complex, L.P. (applicant). The applicant proposes to develop a 711.09-acre site with uses including a 1 mile D-shaped oval super speedway racetrack and drag strip. The potential seating capacity is 52,800 spectators for the super speedway track and 39,800 spectators for the drag strip including grandstands and sky boxes. The track and drag strip are expected to host a wide variety of national, regional, and local racing events. The racing venues would provide approximately six large events and numerous smaller events per year. In addition, the applicant proposes a mix of uses to be developed to include entertainment-related uses, luxury condominiums, commercial offices, a technology-oriented business park, retail stores, hotels, a RV park, public services, and improved infrastructure. The site would be designated Entertainment Commercial by the City of Tulare General Plan. The project requires a 965 acre annexation, a conditional use permit for approval of the overall master site plan, prezoning to C-4 (Service Commercial) and C-3 (Retail Commercial, Mixed Use). A height variance is also requested to allow a stadium height of 140 feet.
