NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The project site is located in the City's Coastal Zone in the General Commercial Zoning District. The northern portion of the Project site contains existing development and the southern portion of the site is vacant with a dirt driveway. A 16,436-square-foot (sf) vacant former office building and associated 47-space parking lot are located in the northern half of the site. The building, locally referred to as the “Old Social Services Building,” has not been leased since 2010 but has been used as storage since then.
Document Description
The proposed Project includes demolition of the existing 16,436-sf vacant former office building and parking area and subsequent development and operation of a 16,157-sf Grocery Outlet (retail grocery store) with associated improvements on the Project site. Grocery Outlet describes itself as a value grocer, meaning that it sells brand name products at bargain prices due to their opportunity buying style. Associated improvements include a parking lot, loading dock and trash enclosure, circulation and access improvements, and utility infrastructure. The Project would also include a merger of three existing parcels (lots) to create one 71,002-sf (1.63 acres) parcel to accommodate the footprint of the proposed retail store within the resulting parcel.
