The County of Tulare Resource Management Agency (RMA) will be preapring an Environmental Impact Report to evaluate the environmental effects associated with the development of an asphalt and concrete batch plant. The project is being proposed by Dunn's Equipment, Inc to produce up t 100,000 cubic yards of concrete per year of asphalt for retail/commercial sale on an approximately 20.0 acre site located south of Avenue 280 between Road 76 and State Route 99. The site is currently zoned as AE-40.
The concrete batch plant is expected to produce cubic yards of concrete per year. Aggregate, cement, and fly ash will be delivered to the site and ready-mix concrete will be delivered to the site and ready-mix concrete will be delivered from the site. The concrete and asphalt recycling operation will consist of accepting broken concrete and asphalt from contractors.The concrete and asphalt will be crushed into recycled base; it is anticipated that 30,000 tons of recycled base will be produced per year and delivered from the site. The hot-mix asphalt (HMA) aspahlt plant is expected to produce 125,000 tons of HMA per year. Aggregate, oil, propane will be delivered from the site. The project would generate approx. 280 passenger car equivalent (PCE) trips during the morning peak travel periods, and 110 PCE trips during the evening peak travel periods. Site access will be provided via one main driveway connecting to the south side of Avenue 280 approximately 1,000 feet east of Road 76.
