These buildings would be constructed in two phases over a 5-year period. The project includes approx. 114,000 sf of asphalt in Phase I and approx. 90,100 sf of asphalt in Phase II. A sphere of influence amendment and annexation of the project site area located south of August Ave has been completed in the service boundaries of HCWD.
