Present Land Use
The 170.21-acre project site (Assessor’s Parcel Numbers [APNs] 078-010-047 and 078-020-035) consists of undeveloped grassland vegetation, and is used for grazing. Wetlands occur on-site primarily in the southern portion of the property. APN 078-020-035 is within the South Ophir Specific Plan area. The City of Oroville General Plan designates both parcels as Industrial. APN 078-010-047 is zoned Intensive Industrial (M-2) and APN 078-020-035 is zoned M-2 with a South Ophir Specific Plan Area Overlay.
Document Description
The Ophir Road Warehouse Project (proposed project) would include the development of four warehouse buildings on-site totaling approximately 3.2 million square feet (sf). Each of the buildings would consist of a one-story concrete tilt-up warehouse with depressed dock areas and would range from 774,000 sf to 869,200 sf. The buildings would each have between 76 and 86 dock doors. Each building would also provide approximately 20,000 sf of office space. It should be noted that the proposed warehouse buildings are speculative warehouses, and, therefore, tenants for the buildings are unknown at this time. A total of 2,152 vehicle parking spaces would be provided on-site. Site access would be provided by a new driveway off of Ophir Road to the north and a new driveway off of Baggett Palermo Road to the east. The southern portion of the project site would remain undeveloped. The project would require Development Review.
