Document Description
1) The project would develop a new fuel facility in place of an existing parking area adjacent to an existing Costco Wholesale store (Costco), on an approximately 1.15-acre portion of the Costco parking lot site. The project includes a 10,244-square foot fuel dispenser canopy, 14 dispensers (28 fueling positions), three 40,000-gallon gasoline underground storage tanks (UST), one 1,500-gallon additive UST, an approximately 125 square-foot controller enclosure, a vapor processing unit, directional striping, and an approximately 6,086 square-foot net increase in landscaped areas. 2) The City of Novato has proposed, as a Capital Improvement Program, to improve and reconfigure components of Rowland Boulevard along the east side of the Vintage Oaks shopping center and from Vintage Way (north) to Redwood Boulevard. The purpose of the Rowland Boulevard improvements is for traffic-calming and improved traffic flow, to improve pedestrian and bicycle transportation modes of travel, enhance aesthetics, and to provide for additional vehicle parking in proximity to Vintage Oaks.
