Present Land Use
Project site is generally is vacant land and has a General Plan Land Use designation of Specific Plan (SPA-8) and is zoned OS-P. Gov't facilities and public utilities are allowed uses within the zone. The subject site is owned by the City of Escondido and immediately adjacent to the City's Hale Avenue Resource Recovery Facility. The HARRF is an activated sludge, secondary treatment facility capable of treating wastewater flows of up to 18 million gallons per day. The facility operates 24 hours a day, with an average daily flow of 15.6 MGD.
The project includes development of approx. 1.8 acres of a larger, approx. 15.4 acre site (overall parcel; APN 235-051-05) for the construction of a new wastewater collections yard and maintenance facility for the City of Escondido's existing Hale Avenue Resource Recovery Facility (HARRF). The Project is intended to provide a new location for maintenance activities associated with the City's Wastewater Collections Division. The proposed new facilities will consist of three separate pre-fabricated metal buildings (Building 1-3,735 SF; Building 2 - 5,470 SF; and Building 3 - 5,670 SF). The three buildings would be up to approx. 34 feet in height to the sloping roof ridgeline and would provide covered outdoor storage areas. The buildings would be used by the City's Wastewater Collections Division for collections; work bays and workshops for regular maintenance of vehicles and equipment associated with operations at HARRF; warehousing and indoor storage. Paved parking spaces also would be provided from the existing driveway access from Citracado Parkway along the southern area of the property, or from the existing driveways from Hale Avenue through the HARRF facility. A security gate would be installed along the access drive near the entrance off of Citracado Parkway.
