Present Land Use
The approximately 1,612.90-acre project site is primarily developed with active agricultural land, including almond and cherry orchards, and two agricultural processing facilities. Surrounding existing uses include agricultural land to the north, south, and east; rural single-family residences to the northeast; and a surface mining operation to the northwest. In addition, the Delta Mendota Canal and Banta Carbona Irrigation District Canal are located along the eastern boundary of the project site, and the California Aqueduct is located along the western boundary of the site. The site is currently designated General Agriculture (A/G) and Open Space/Resource Conservation (OS/RC) by the County’s General Plan and the site is zoned as AG-40-acres Zoning District by the County.
Document Description
The draft Specific Plan for the project outlines the phased development of a mixed-use logistics hub that would include a variety of industrial use types that would result in 27,650,000 square feet (sf) of limited industrial use. The Industrial use would be paired with 86,684 sf of general commercial use, 93,654 sf of business park use, a 29-acre private university, a Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) post, and various open space, park, pedestrian and bicycle facilities within the 1,612-acre project site. The first application proposes the subdivision of the entire 1,612-acre project site into twenty-eight lots and the second application proposes a Small Lot Subdivision of 530.59 acres to create nineteen lots to facilitate the Industrial Project Initial Phase. The proposed project would require County approval of a General Plan Text Amendment, General Plan Map Amendment, Rezone, Specific Plan, Major Subdivisions, Administrative Use (Site Approval) Permits, and Development Agreement.
