Document Description
This is a request to amend the general plan and zoning designation of a 9.6-acre site, from Commercial and Salida Community Plan General Commercial (SCP C-2) to Planned Development, to allow for development of a convenience store/community market, gas station, restaurant, retail building, and mini-storage facility to be developed on approximately four acres of the site. The project proposes the following uses: 2,310 square feet of retail space; 3,250 square feet of fast-food restaurant space with drive-thru and outdoor dining area; Service station with six pumps; Two above-ground gasoline storage tanks; 4,500 square feet of convenience market space; and 61,460 square feet of mini storage with 1,400 square feet of office space. The mini-storage buildings are proposed to be placed along the southeastern, eastern, and northern boundaries of the project site to act as a buffer between the proposed development and the existing residential uses to the south and southeast. Although the use types are specified in this request, no specific users are identified at this time. Depending on the end user, the gas station might include petroleum, diesel, and/or hydrogen fuel and/or an electrical vehicle (EV) charging station. The project estimates 18 employees will be on-site during a maximum shift, 60 customers, and deliveries as needed. Hours of operation for the market are proposed to be 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Delivery cutoff time for the proposed site will be 6 p.m. The remaining acres of the site will remain undeveloped, with the exception of a storm drainage basin, with no public access and will be required to obtain land use entitlements prior to future developments. The site is proposed to be served by the City of Modesto for water and Salida Sanitary for sewer services. A request to amend the General Plan and Community Plan designation of Commercial to Planned Development is also included in this request to correct a draftsman’s error that occurred when the Salida Community Plan map was amended in 2007. The project site was part of the prior Salida Community Plan and, as such, the current designations were established in error with the adoption of the 2007 Salida Initiative. This request will return the property back to its original, pre-2007 Initiative, General Plan and Community Plan designations of Planned Development.
