Request to rezone a 10.0± acre parcel from A-2-10 (General Agriculture) to Planned Development (P-D) to allow for the development of various commercial uses for the traveling public. Specifically, the applicant proposes to construct a 2,980 square foot addition to an existing 4,066 square foot convenience store, two quick-service restaurants totaling 5,526 square feet with drive-thrus, a 6,000 square foot sit-down restaurant, and a 2,560 square foot truck wash, and an outdoor rest area. The site has an existing automobile fueling station with six fueling pumps and proposes to add both a secondary fueling station, with four fueling dispensers, and a tractor-trailer fueling station, with ten fueling lanes. The project also proposes to replace the face of an existing 60-foot tall freestanding sign with a digital reader board which will be viewable from the freeway.
As part of the proposed development, there will be 90 parking stalls for automobiles, 50 stalls for tractor-trailers for overnight parking, perimeter landscaping, and an on-site storm water retention basin. The site proposes to provide 7 points of access via paved driveways onto Ingram Creek Road, a portion of which is County-maintained. The development will be served by private septic systems and wells. A east-west 60-foot-wide access easement crosses the site.
The fueling facilities will operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. There will be up to 5 employees on a maximum shift at the convenience store, up to 4 employees per shift operating the truck wash, and up to 6 employees operating the two quick-service restaurants, and up to 10 employees on a maximum shift employed by the sit-down restaurant for a total of 25 maximum employees on-site at one time. Once developed, future tenants of the three on-site restaurants will establish individual hours of operation and overall number of employees for their respective operations. The applicant anticipates 30 fuel deliveries per week for the truck stop, approximately 7 truck deliveries per week for the gas station, and approximately 5-7 times per week for the three on-site restaurants.
