Document Description
Speedway Commerce Center Proposed Project Project Location: The Project is located partially in the City of Rancho Cucamonga and partially within unincorporated San Bernardino County. The Project site is located directly south of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway, directly west of San Sevaine Channel, north of Napa Street in the City of Rancho Cucamonga and San Bernardino County, and east of the East Etiwanda Creek Channel. The Project site is located on two contiguous parcels: APNs 0229-291-54 and 0229-291-46. Parcel 0229-291-54 (approximately 32.83 acres) is located within the City of Rancho Cucamonga city limits. Parcel 0229-291-46 (approximately 2.9 acres) is located outside the City of Rancho Cucamonga city limits, within the County of San Bernardino and within the City of Fontana Sphere of Influence (SOI). A portion of an additional parcel, APN 0229-291-23, would be annexed as part of the Project, although no development is proposed on the site. The Project is situated approximately 1.3 miles east of Interstate 15 (I-15) and approximately 1.5 miles north of Interstate 10 (I-10). Relationship to Other Jurisdictions: The Project includes a Pre-zone, annexation, and jurisdiction boundary change/SOI amendment for two parcels, APN 0229-291-23 and APN 0229-291-46. APN 0229-291-46, a parcel of approximately 2.9 acres in size, is part of the Project and is located within the County of San Bernardino and within the City of Fontana SOI. The annexation request includes a portion of parcel APN 0229-291-23, the adjacent property to the west, located outside of the City of Rancho Cucamonga limit. The annexation will increase the boundary of the City of Rancho Cucamonga by approximately 4.8 acres in size and decrease the SOI for the City of Fontana by the same size. Project Description: The Project involves the development of two (2) warehouse buildings (Buildings A and B) including approximately 20,000 sf of ancillary office spaces and 635,878 sf of warehouse space for a total of 655,878 sf. The proposed Project, referred to as Speedway Commerce Center, would comprise approximately 43 percent of the total Project site area. Each of the two warehouse buildings would include 10,000 square foot office spaces. Building A has a typical height of 46 feet and Building B has a typical height of 38 feet, with a maximum height not to exceed 58’-6” for Building A and 50’-6” for Building B. The Project applicant expects that two (2) buildings would be occupied by warehouse distribution uses. The Project would create vehicular access points to the Project site by developing four (4) Project driveways, all along Napa Street. In addition, a new public street would be constructed, just west of Building B and east of East Etiwanda Creek. The new public street would replace the existing driveway access from Napa Street to Aguilar Trucking, Inc. (APN 0229-291-55) and would include two additional driveway entrances to the Project site for accessing Building B. This new road would be the primary access point for the Aguilar Trucking, Inc. (APN 0229-291-55) property located just north of Building B and would serve as a future extension of a roadway network that would connect to a future east/west road. This future east/west road would run just south of the Metrolink rail line and connect to Etiwanda Avenue, consistent with the new circulation pattern proposed as part of the General Plan Update, currently underway. All entrances to the Project site would be unsignalized. Alternate Project: An Alternate Project scenario has also been analyzed as part of the Drat EIR. The Alternate Project (an ECommerce use) would include a single building that was analyzed for the purpose of informed decision making. The site would be developed with the single 500,648 sf building (approximately 33 percent of the total proposed Project site area) with the remainder of the site developed with parking to support the E-Commerce use. The Alternate Project would generally create the same vehicular access to the Project site by developing four (4) Project driveways, all along Napa Street with the addition of the new public street constructed just west of the proposed parking lot located on the western portion of the site and just east of East Etiwanda Creek. This new road would be the primary access point for the property located just north of the parking lot and would serve as a future extension of a roadway network that would connect to a future east/west road, as described under the Project above. All entrances to the Project site would be unsignalized. General Plan and Zoning: The current General Plan designation for parcel 0229-291-54 located in the City of Rancho Cucamonga is Heavy Industrial (HI). Additionally, the western edge (approximately 50 feet) of the Project site is designated as Flood Control/Utility Corridor. The San Bernardino County General Plan designation for parcel 0229-291-46 located in San Bernardino County is General Industrial (GI) and is designated in the City of Fontana General Plan as General Industrial (I-G). The San Bernardino County GP designation for parcel 0229-291-23 located in San Bernardino County is General Industrial (GI) and is designated in the City of Fontana General Plan as Public Utility Corridor (P-UC). The current Zoning classification for parcel 0229-291-54 located in the City of Rancho Cucamonga is Heavy Industrial (HI). The Zoning classification for parcel 0229-291-46 located in the County of San Bernardino is Regional Industrial (IR) and is classified General Industrial (M-2) in the City of Fontana. The Zoning classification for parcel 0229-291-23 located in San Bernardino County is Regional Industrial/Speedway RDA (IR) and is classified in the City of Fontana General Plan as General Industrial (M-2).
