General Plan Amendment & Rezone Application No. PLN2018-0081 - Libitzky Management Corporation
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Orchard and vacant land/A-2-10 (General Agriculture)/Urban Transition (UT)
Document Description
Request to amend the General Plan and zoning designations of a 17.16-acre parcel from Urban Transition and A-2-10 (General Agriculture) to P-D (Planned Development), to allow the construction of a 300,000 square-foot building for various light industrial uses. Jackrabbit, a designer and fabricator of agricultural equipment, is expected to occupy 150,000 square-feet of the proposed building, but may not be the final user. No showroom is planned, but there will be an area for parts sales for existing Jackrabbit customers. No other tenants have been identified for the remaining 150,000 square feet of building space at this time. However, the remainder of the building may be suited depending on the user. Proposed hours of operation are 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with 250 people on a maximum shift, and three shifts per day. A maximum of 25 daily customers and 1,488 truck/vehicle trips are anticipated per day. The trip generation estimate considers the “worst case” scenario for a variety of light industrial uses in the event Jackrabbit does not occupy either a portion, or all of the building. The project proposes to share access, and to connect to the existing public water system and stormwater basin, located on the adjacent site to the east, which is zoned P-D (131). The proposed building will be served by an on-site septic system. A reciprocal access agreement will be recorded for the adjacent parcel. A six-foot tall chain link fence is proposed along the south and east property lines, and a six-foot tall wrought iron fence is proposed along the north and west property lines along site’s the road frontage. The project site has access to County-maintained Tully Road and Kiernan Avenue, via the shared access on the adjacent parcel to the east, and is within the City of Modesto’s LAFCO adopted Sphere of Influence. Parking lot lighting, signage, and landscaping will be designed to comply with City of Modesto standards.
