The proposed project involves the conversion of an existing 1,035± square-foot automobile service station into a 1,035± square-foot mini-mart on a 0.35 acre site (APNs 019-891-01 ). The project involves removing the auto repair lifts and converting the area to a convenience store use. Proposed site improvements include new accessible parking space and path of travel, trash enclosure, and landscaping. No changes are proposed to the existing building's exterior save for painting the building the color scheme for a Valero gas station.
This project is eligible for a Class 3 Categorical Exemption per Section 15303 of the
State CEQA Guidelines as it involves the conversion of an existing small structure from one use (auto repair service) to another (convenience store) where only minor modifications are made to the exterior of the structure. The project is located in the Crestview Shopping Center and would not increase the size of any buildings. The proposed use-a convenience store-is principally permitted in the CNS Zoning District. The project is in an area where all public services and facilities are available to allow for maximum development permissible in the General Plan and the area in which the project is located is not environmentally sensitive.
