Document Description
The City of Commerce is processing a request to implement a series of discretionary actions that would ultimately allow for the development of a three-part project that would provide maintenance for the City’s fleet including, but not limited to existing passenger vehicles, light trucks, trailers, lawnmowers and transit buses and vans. The first part would be to develop a 2.65-acre temporary transit maintenance facility (TMF) site at 5733 Shelia Street, while the permanent TMF site would be constructed. The second part is moving equipment and aboveground storage tanks from the existing TMF at 5555 Jillson Street to the temporary TMF site. The third part would be to develop a 6.51-acre permanent TMF at 5926 Sheila Street, which would involve demolition of the existing Commerce Refuse to Energy Facility (CREF) and to construct a maintenance building approximately 16,500 square feet and an office and warehouse building approximately 20,000 sf. The compressed natural gas/liquefied natural gas (CNG/LNG) station on the east part of the project site would remain. CNG-fueled buses would refuel at the CNG/LNG station.
