Development Permit and Environmental Assessment No. P21-03293 was filed by G4 Enterprises, LTD (herein, “Project Applicant”) and proposes to develop a truck trailer storage lot on an approximately 15-acre site located at the northeast corner of S. East Avenue and E. Central Avenue in Fresno, CA 93725, APN: 330-021-31. The proposed storage lot would provide truck trailer storage for the user of Building 31, located immediately north of the site at 3611 South Northpointe Drive, Fresno, CA 93725, APN: 330-021-82S. The location of the proposed storage lot, immediately adjacent to Building 31, will provide operational efficiency for this industrial user. The storage lot is intended to supplement activities occurring at Building 31, and all truck trips utilizing the storage lot were considered when Building 31 was approved under Development Permit (D-17-175) and Major Revised Exhibit (P20-03406). The proposed storage lot and modifications to the existing Building 31 parking lot comprise the proposed Project.
The proposed trailer storage lot would contain a total of 314 trailer parking spaces (12’x55’), including 10 future electric truck trailer parking stalls and would be constructed with asphalt concrete (ac). The site will have pole lighting to illuminate the parking area. There will also be site drain inlets and piping facilities to drain onsite rainfall to existing storm drain facilities. The Project is proposing to construct a 7-foot-high security fence along the perimeter of the proposed site with vehicle swing access gates and two ±147 and ±279 square foot security buildings at points of ingress and egress. Other improvements include approximately 300 feet of curb, gutter, and sidewalk improvements along S. East Avenue and similar improvements along the property’s frontage of E. Central Avenue. A water main will be installed along the Project’s frontage along Central Ave and landscaping will also be provided along the Project’s frontage of Central and East Avenues.
The proposed modifications to the Building 31 parking lot include the addition of curb and two passenger parking stalls at the northeast entrance of the site; removal of the guard shack and truck entrance on the northwest corner of the site, and addition of 66 passenger car parking stalls to serve the existing employee force. An emergency access gate will be installed and the existing guard shack and truck exit on the southeast corner of the site will be removed. This exit will become emergency access only.
Operational times will be 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There will be one point of ingress off of S. East Avenue, and two points of egress at S. East Avenue and E. Central Avenue. Traffic utilizing the parking lot will include trucks making deliveries to Building 31 and minimal employee trips. The parking lot is intended to supplement activities occurring at Building 31, and all truck trips utilizing the parking lot were considered when Building 31 was approved. New employees generated by the Project will be limited to approximately six new employees at the new guard buildings.
