Document Description
Request to install a 59-foot tall Ferris wheel and amend the uses permitted in P-D (203), to allow for the sale and service of alcohol for on-site consumption at an existing amusement park on a 6.37± acre parcel in the Planned Development (P-D) (203) zoning district. The existing amusement park was approved by the Board of Supervisors on February 9, 1993 under Rezone No. 92-09 – Camelot Park Family Entertainment Centers, Inc. Development Standards for P-D 203 specify a height limit of 35-feet tall. As part of this request, the applicant proposes to remove and replace the existing Go Kart track attraction from the project site to install the Ferris wheel. The proposed Ferris wheel does not conform to the development standards for the zoning district and, as such, a use permit is required to permit the Ferris wheel as proposed. Additionally, Rezone No. 92-09 did not permit the sale or service of alcohol on-site therefore a Use Permit is required to amend the permitted uses of P-D (203). The project site is currently developed with a 12,069± square-foot family entertainment building consisting of a snack bar, dining area, restrooms and arcade gaming area; a 4.34± acre outdoor area for attractions and rides; and a 1.75± acre parking lot consisting of 183 parking stalls. The existing amusement park has a current license to sell and serve beer and wine from the snack bar to be consumed onsite. Current hours of operation will remain unchanged from Monday-Thursday 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday 12:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The applicant anticipates 25 employees on a maximum shift, and 300 customers per day; no increases to employees or customers are anticipated as a result of this request. No increases to the four daily truck trips are anticipated either. No expansion of the park boundaries is associated with this request. A Staff Approval Application (SAA No. PLN2021-0067 – Boomers Modesto) to permit three additional rides to be developed within the existing park area is being processed separately from this request. The project site has access to County-maintained Bangs Avenue, and is served with public water by the City of Modesto and sewer services by Salida Sanitary District
