Document Description
The Costco Wholesale Corporation proposes to construct the Costco Commercial Center, including a new Costco facility with an attached tire center and a detached gas station and drive-through car wash. The existing Costco at West Shaw Avenue would relocate to the new facility, which would be sized to accommodate the customer base in northwest Fresno. The project also includes a proposed general plan amendment and rezone to reclassify the adjacent portion of West Herndon Avenue from the Expressway to Super Arterial road designation to allow for appropriate vehicle access.
