Document Description
The Project proposes the construction of a CarMax pre-owned automobile dealership on a vacant, approximately 10.54-acre site, situated on two (2) parcels (APNs 168-012-42-00 and 168-012-43-00). Phase I of the Project would consist of a sales and administrative building, service building, private carwash, associated access drives, landscaped areas, presentation area, staging area, sales display area, and a customer and employee parking lot on the southern parcel. The northern parcel would be used as an additional sales display area with a security gate and control island and would be developed as part of Phase II of the Project. All vehicle service work is to be performed inside fully-conditioned buildings equipped with rollup doors. Retail service vehicles and vehicles awaiting disposition off-site are stored in the secured non-public staging area located southwest of the building on a temporary basis. Vehicular access to that area would be strictly controlled through the use of embassy-style security gates. Parking spaces are not designated in this area on the plan due to the change of staging and storage of vehicles within this area on a daily basis. The non-public carwash is located in the secured staging area. An aboveground fuel storage tank with a capacity of 4,000 gallons would be located south of the sales building with a non-public fuel pump adjacent to the carwash within the secured staging area to fuel inventory vehicles as needed.
