Document Description
The proposed Project would construct a new community park on a portion of the undeveloped area of Fresno County Assessor Parcel Number 355-041-24T in central Parlier. The Project would plant new trees, create a natural bioswale to capture stormwater, and construct a jogging and walking pathway around the perimeter of the park. The Project proposes to install solar light fixtures to provide lighting along the walkway during the evenings once the Project has been completed. The City of Parlier’s official park hours are from 7AM to 10PM. The Project would include ADA on-site parking. The Project includes restrooms with low-flow toilets and would be designed with environmental sustainability features (i.e. recycled materials, solar lights, environmentally friendly hardscape, etc.) The proposed Project would cover approximately 1.76 acres of land. In 2017, the Housing Authority of Fresno County demolished an existing 50-unit affordable housing community built in 1964 that occupied approximately 7.59 acres of land within the same parcel. The Housing Authority constructed a new 56-unit affordable housing apartment complex, occupying only approximately 4.82 acres of land in the same parcel. The remaining approximately 2.77 acres of parcel remains undeveloped, except for the Boys and Girls Club building located on the southeast corner of E Parlier Ave and Avila Street. This building was not affected by the demolition of the previous housing community or the construction of the new affordable housing project. Similarly, this building would not be affected by the Project. In order for the Project to comply with the City of Parlier’s General Plan, an amendment to the General Plan Land Use designation is necessary. The Land Use designation for the portion of land that is to be developed by this Project would need to be changed from Medium Density Residential to Park. After the Land Use designation amendment has been approved, the portion of land will be rezoned from R-2 (Low Density / Multiple Family Residential) to O (Open Space).
