Document Description
The Costco Wholesale Corporation (Costco) proposes to construct the Costco Commercial Center (hereafter “project”), which comprises a new Costco facility (including loading docks and internal space to provide last-mile home delivery of big and bulky items) with an attached tire center and a detached gas station and drive-through car wash in the City of Fresno. As the lead agency, the City of Fresno will prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the project and is issuing this Notice of Preparation (NOP) per Section 15082 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines. The purpose of this NOP is to provide agencies, interested parties, and organizations with sufficient information describing the project and the potential environmental effects to enable meaningful input related to the scope and content of information to be included in the EIR. The EIR will evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the project on both a direct and cumulative basis and identify potentially feasible mitigation measures or alternatives that may lessen or avoid impacts. The City is requesting input from the public and responsible and trustee agencies on environmental issues associated with development of the project, as described in this NOP. Comments received during this public comment period will be used to focus the environmental analyses in the EIR.
