Present Land Use
Document Description
Subdivide and develop approximately 159-acres of land into an industrial complex with up to ten (10) individual lots to accommodate future industrial uses. The lots will range in size from approximately 9 to 19 acres (See Figure 2 -Project Site Layout). No specific industrial uses are being proposed at this time; thus, the environmental evaluation assumes the greatest/largest buildout available under the proposed M-3(c) (Heavy Industrial; Conditional) designation. The M-3 designation includes development that would also be allowed under the M-2 (General Industrial District) and M-1 (Light Manufacturing District) designations. Although no specific industrial uses are being proposed at this time, it should be noted that certain industrial uses such as aircraft factory, aluminum foundry, railroad repair shop, sawmill, cotton gin and oil mills, oils and fat refining and many more have been eliminated from consideration under this Project. A complete list of all uses in the M-3, M-2 and M-1 zone districts eliminated from this project can be provided upon request. The proposed Project is located on approximately 159-acres, approximately 0.5 miles east of Malaga (a census-designated place) in Fresno County and is bounded generally by E. North Avenue to the north, S. Minnewawa Avenue to the west, Clovis Avenue to the east, and E. Central Avenue approximately 1,000 feet south of the Project’s southern boundary. The site is approximately 4.5 miles southeast of downtown Fresno and approximately 7 miles west of the City of Sanger. The Project is comprised of four assessor’s parcels: 331-200-07s, 331-200-08s, 331-020-32, and 331-020-33. See Figure 1-Site Aerial Map and Figure 2 - Project Site Layout.
