Document Description
The proposed project would involve the construction and operation of a commercial center consisting of a convenience store, retail shops, and a gasoline station. The northern and eastern portion of the site would be subdivided into five separate parcels for future residential development. The future new convenience store would consist of a single level and would have a total floor area of 4,842 square feet. The fueling area would consist of six fuel dispensers with a total of 12 fueling positions. Two underground storage tanks (UST) would be located just east of the fueling area and would include a 10,000 gallon 89 octane and 5,000 gallon diesel UST. A second 15,000 gallon UST would contain 92 Octane and diesel fuel. A future new “L-shaped” retail building would be located in the northeastern corner of the site. This building would be a single-level and would have a total floor area of 19,343 square feet. Vehicular access to the site would be provided by two driveway connections. One driveway (both ingress and egress) would be connect with the north side of Waalew Road and a second driveway (also both ingress and egress) would connect with the east side of Central Road. The proposed project would provide 100 parking spaces including 92 standard spaces and 8 ADA spaces. Landscaping would total 4,800 square feet and would be provided around the new building and along the site’s roadway frontages. The proposed project’s lot coverage would be 23%. The project site’s Zoning designation is R-E (Residential Estate) and the site’s General Plan designation is Estate Residential. The proposed project would require both a Zone Change (ZC) and a General Plan Amendment (GPA) to permit the proposed commercial project. The northeastern portion of the site that would be occupied by the proposed commercial uses would be rezoned to General Commercial (C-G) and the General Plan designation would be changed to the General Commercial. The future five residential parcels would remain Residential-Estate.
