Specific project components include: o Three quick serve drive-thru buildings +/- 3,750 square feet +/- 5,500 square feet +/- 4,500 square feet o Inline major buildings and retail buildings totaling +/- 77,585 square feet to be used for: General Retail Grocery store with alcohol sales 24-hour drug store • Installation of a new east-bound left turn lane off West Henderson Avenue • New signage including: 80’ pylon sign in the northeast site corner 60’ pylon sign in the southeast site corner • 20’ monument sign along West Henderson Avenue. • Associated improvements including parking areas, nighttime lighting and site landscaping, in accordance with Porterville City standards. Existing City services (water, sewer, and stormwater) are located in W. Henderson Avenue and the applicant will be required to tie into these existing facilities. The proposed Project would require gas, telephone, cable, and electrical improvements. Natural gas would be provided by The Gas Company; telephone services would be provided by AT&T; electric power would be provided by Southern California Edison Company; and cable television would be provided by Charter Communication. The extent of work required for utilities and gas would be determined during final project design. Since the development is proposed to be greater than 50,000 square feet, a Conditional Use Permit is required for project approval and a General Plan Amendment is required to change APN 246-240-020 from Low Density Residential to Retail Centers. Additionally, a Parcel Map may be required to reconfigure parcel lines and/or create new parcels meeting the requirements of all applicable codes for sale or lease.
