Department of Motor Vehicles Delano Field Office Replacement Project

MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Document Description
The proposed project consists of construction of a new approx 11,000-gsf, single-story DMV field office with attached carport and associated on-site circulation and landscaping improvements on a 3-acre lot in Delano, CA. The building would be a maximum of 35 ft above finish floor elevation as measured above the top of roof at its highest point. The eastern portion of the project site would accommodate a vehicle staging area with a carport and test lanes. The new field office would accommodate the existing daily stuff (12) and would serve up to 350 customers on opening day, the same number of customers it is currently serving. The DMV estimates that by 2030, the new facility would serve up to 400 customers per day. The proposed parking lot layout and configuration would accommodate approx 65 parking spaces (including three ADA-compliant spaces) designated for customers and 17 parking spaces (including one ADA compliant space) designated for staff. Customer parking would be located to the west and south of the proposed building and staff parking would be located to the north and east of the proposed building. A solar panel parking canopy would be constructed to cover a portion of the customer parking. The project site would also be equipped with two electric vehicle charging stations. The project site would be accessible from two driveways along Dover Parkway: one in the northern portion and one in the southern portion of the site. A 7-ft high ornamental wrought-iron fence with a painted finish would be installed along the site perimeter with motorized rolling gates at the site driveways on the west front of the property. Infrastructure improvements include installation of utilities (water, sewer, and power), walkways, curbs and gutters, signage, landscaping and irrigation, trash enclosures, site drainage, site lighting, surface parking, and fencing.
