Document Description
The project requests the following entitlements: A Use Permit for a facility that formerly qualified as a recycling center and is currently designated as a Medium Volume Transfer Station to obtain a Solid Waste Facilities Permit as a Large Volume Transfer Station in the North Watt Avenue Special Planning Area. A Special Development Permit to allow the proposed project to deviate from the following development standards: Screen Fences (Section 5.2.5.D.5.a): Outdoor storage of materials and equipment shall be located within the buildable portion of the lot (56 feet from Watt Avenue), and screened from view with solid wood fencing, a masonry wall, or chain-link fencing with slats. Screen fencing shall also be located within the buildable portion of the lot. As proposed, outdoor storage of materials and equipment is to be located 25 feet from the Watt Avenue right-of-way and screened from view with open wrought-iron fencing and landscaping. A Design Review to determine substantial compliance with the Sacramento County Countywide Design Guidelines (Design Guidelines). The Use Permit and subsequent Solid Waste Facilities Permit for a Large Volume Transfer Station will allow for the following operations based on the information presented in the draft Transfer Processing Report prepared by the applicant and included as Appendix A: The total volume of material accepted at the facility will not exceed 400 tons per day. Material may include Single Stream Recyclable (“curbside” recyclables) material which may contain over 10 percent residual material, commercial comingled recyclables, clean recyclables, or a combination thereof. The proposed Use Permit will allow for a greater tonnage of residual material (putrescible waste and rejected materials) to be processed than currently allowed. Residual material is not kept on the project site and is removed within 24 to 48 hours to nearby transfer stations or landfills, primarily the North Area Transfer Station. The number of trucks entering and exiting the facility per day is based on the truck type and total volume of material per day. One hundred ninety (190) trips per day (120 inbound and 20 outbound trips and 60 employee trips) will be allowed under this Use Permit.
