Request to construct a truck terminal that facilitates fueling, parking, loading, and unloading for company owned trucks and its drivers on a 5.23-acre parcel in the Planned Development (P-D) (332) zoning district. P-D (332) was established by Rezone No. PLN2015-0032 – Belkorp Ag, which was approved by the Board of Supervisors on November 3, 2015, to allow for the development of a variety of Highway Commercial uses, including truck terminals which requires a Use Permit prior to development. The project proposes the construction of four buildings, consisting of: a two-story office, shop, and driver amenities building, 6,500 square feet in size, to be utilized for administrative work; a shop to be utilized for light truck maintenance, and for driver rest, shower, and laundry facilities; a single-story administrative building, 6,000 square feet in size, to be utilized for truck dispatching, reception, security office, conference room, and as an employee restroom and breakroom; a single-story truck dock building, 3,900 square feet in size; and a single-story security guard kiosk, 94 square feet in size. The project proposes to contract with various agriculture producers and grocery stores for the transfer and delivery of goods throughout Arizona, California, Nevada, and Texas.
The project proposes to install landscaping, made up of a mixture of drought-resistant trees, shrubs, and groundcover, along the site’s Golden State Boulevard road frontage, and throughout the employee and truck driver vehicle parking lot. There will be paved areas around the buildings and in the parking lot, but the remainder of the site, including the truck parking area, will remain gravel. On all sides of the project, chain link fencing will be installed. The project proposes 13 employees during a maximum shift and three employees during a minimum shift. Drivers reporting to the site arrive on an as-needed basis for refueling, or for the loading and offloading of product. However, no product will be stored onsite. Approximately 5-7 drivers will be on site on any given day. It is estimated that there will be a maximum of 10 trucks and 10 trailers parked at the facility during any given time, however the site will accommodate the parking of up to 60 trucks, which will be offsite on delivery the majority of the time. The days and hours of operation for the office and shop will be Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. However, trucks will have access to the facility 24/7. There are 73 parking spaces proposed at the site, 51 for drivers and 16 for office employees. Of these, 63 are regular spaces, 4 accessible spaces, and 6 are motorcycle spaces. In addition, there are 60 parking spaces for trucks in the proposal.
The project site is proposed to be served with public water and public sewer by the Keyes Community Services District (CSD). A reciprocal access agreement is proposed between the subject parcel and the parcel adjoining the Northern boundary of the parcel to allow each parcel to utilize a shared access from 80-Foot-wide county-maintained N. Golden State Blvd.
