Document Description
A request by Dan Blough/JDJ Land Co, LLC to amend the A9SP (SPZ 2020-0001), a Tentative Tract Map (TR2020-0001) to subdivide an existing 31.7-acre parcel into 20 light industrial lots, and a Planned Development Permit (PD2019-0011) for the construction of 12 light industrial buildings on 12 proposed lots of the subdivision (see Figure 1). The project also includes offsite improvements on an adjacent parcel, including an extension of Sonya Lane from A Street to the east and a stormwater drainage basin to serve the proposed project. The project proposes two separate phases of development. Phase 1 would include the development of 12 two-story buildings for light industrial use along the northern boundary of the project site. Upon construction, the Phase 1 buildings are proposed to be used for farmworker housing, as further described below. Phase 2 includes the development of 8 additional buildings for light industrial use along the western boundary of the project site to accommodate light industrial or manufacturing uses and potentially the conversion of some or all of the farmworker housing to light industrial uses. While the Specific Plan Amendment is required to be approved prior to the Tract Map and Planning Development Permit, these entitlements are being reviewed concurrently by the City and each has been evaluated in this environmental document.
