The proposed project involves the development of three separate areas, described as Areas A, B, and C. Area A would include the future potential development of two drive-through restaurants. Area B would be developed with the Ganahl Lumber hardware store and lumber yard, which would be comprised of 15 structures, including 3 main buildings, a guard house, and 11 sheds. Area C would include a crushed-rock gravel area for long-term vehicle storage; the lot would include 399 parking spaces that would be used by local car dealerships to store excess vehicles. In addition, the proposed project includes an easement for a two-lane access road extending from Area A to the properties immediately south of Stonehill Drive. A two-lane easement travelling north/south from the northwestern corner of Area C to Avenida Aeropuerto is also proposed.
