NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Zoning Designation: Light Industrial (IL). General Plan Designation: Neo-Industrial (NI). The existing Project site is vacant remnants of an abandoned driving range are present in the southwest portion of the Project site, including a paved surface parking lot and supports for a tee-box canopy. Wooden poles and netting remaining from the former driving range are present on much of the perimeter of the Project site. Much of the site is bare land; portions of the balance of the site are vegetated with disturbed vegetation consisting mostly of non-native grasses and shrubs. Ornamental vegetation (i.e., pine, eucalyptus, and sycamore trees) is interspersed among portions of the parking lot in the southern part of the site. The Project site was historically used illegally for driving off-road vehicles, but the Project site has since been fenced and measures have been taken to prevent trespassing for driving off-road vehicles and all other prohibited uses. Most of the Project site slopes slightly toward the south and elevations onsite range from 38 to 71 feet above mean sea level (AMSL). A freestanding billboard with two static display panels in a “V” configuration stands offsite to the southwest. A single-panel billboard is shown at that location in aerial photographs dated 1972 through 1994 and a double-panel billboard is shown in aerial photographs dated from 2002 onward.
Document Description
The Project site would be developed with a four-story, 206,756-sf self-storage building consisting of approximately 1,681 self-storage units on four levels. The first level would include a combination of drive-up storage units with roll-up doors located along the perimeters of the building and directly accessible from the outside, and interior storage units accessible from the building’s interior. The second, third, and fourth stories would include interior-accessible storage units. Ancillary uses would include one lobby and two unisex restrooms on the first floor. The proposed building would include two elevators and two stairwells, and one main point of entry/exit through the lobby. Alternate points of entry/exit would be in connection with the two stairwells and the electrical room. The building would be constructed in the southeast portion of the Project site. The remaining balance of the Project site would include 426 rentable recreational vehicle parking stalls (majority covered), 26 standard automobile parking stalls, and 5 ADA accessible automobile parking stalls. The Project would also include the development of a 1,281 sf private car wash for exclusive use by property owner or tenants, site improvements, landscaping, and off-site improvements along Pacific Place Road, and dedication of an easement for development of a publicly accessible trail and trailhead.
