Document Description
The project site is located on the south side of Commerce Avenue, less than a quarter mile west of its intersection of Industry Way and consists of four parcels (APN: 056-241-012; 013; 014). It should be noted that the fourth parcel located on the south end of the project site does not have an APN (refer to figure 1.3-1). The project site is approximately twenty-two acres. The project proposes constructing seven buildings totaling 87,000 square feet with 234 parking spaces throughout the four parcels, including ADA-compliant and CalGreen parking. Buildings One, Six, and Seven, identified in figure 1.3-1, will be the project's retail components. Building One will be approximately 10,000 square feet with an anticipated use as an automotive/trailer sales operation. Building Six, approximately 25,000 square feet, and Building Seven, which is approximately 10,000 square feet, will be used as a hardware store and garden center. While the primary function of these facilities will be to operate as retail stores, they will hold seasonal sale event venues, which will include outdoor activities. The project also intends to host mobile food vendors; however, the mobile food vendors will not be limited to just the retail component but also the industrial portion of the project. Buildings Two, Three, Four, and Five will be primarily used for industrial-type uses. Buildings Two and Three are approximately 10,000 square feet each. Building Four is approximately 14,000 square feet, 3,000 square feet of that will be used as office space. Building Five, approximately 8,000 square feet, will be used as a maintenance/vehicle storage area. Located between Building Four and Five will be an above-ground tank containing approximately 12,000 gallons of diesel. There will also be container drums that will store 250 gallons of unleaded gasoline. As a result, a Hazardous Materials Business Plan will need to be implemented. Access to the project site will be from a roadway that the project proponent will dedicate to the City of Atwater and will be configured as a cul-de-sac. The dedicated road will be located on the south side of Commerce Avenue. Commerce Avenue will be reconstructed with a stripped center turn lane. Sufficient right of way exists, and no further dedication of right of way along Commerce Avenue is required along the project frontage. The dedicated roadway (cul-de-sac) will lead to the parking areas of all seven buildings. Much of the parking area will be constructed of asphalt, and the parking area around Building Seven will be concrete. The lighting will include downward-facing hoods to minimize the illumination in the area. Figure
