NEG - Negative Declaration

Document Description
The project comprises of two actions: amending the GP and amending the official zoning map for the 9.4-acre site consisting of two parcels (APN 128-139-019, -020). The project site is fully developed, and includes an existing 130,365-sf commercial retail warehouse on parcel 128-139-019 which was previously occupied by Costco Wholesale from 1988 until 2017. A 4,045-sf fast food restaurant occupied by Carl's Jr. currently operates on parcel 128-139-020. The GPA would change the GP LUD and of the 9.4 acre site from a LI LUD. The amendment to the official zoning map would change the zoning district of the project site from a PD/M-1 zoning district to a CC LUD and PD/C-2 zoning district, to allow for future commercial uses in the existing adjacent shopping center.
