Document Description
Project would establish a biodiesel fueling station at a former gas station site (currently used for car washing and detailing). An above-ground fuel storage tank would be located at the northwest corner of the site. In order to provide adequate vertical clearance for taller vehicles, the roofs of the existing fuel pump canopies would be removed, and new, taller roofs would be constructed on the existing brick columns. The existing office/service building would remain and would undergo seismic upgrades. New signage, landscaping and lighting would be installed. Schools within the vicinity include Longfellow Junior High School and Malcolm X Elementary School. Other schools within 2 miles are not listed due to limited scope and impacts of project.
