Document Description
The proposed project consists of a Site Development Plan and Special Use Permit for the construction of a new 3,363 sq. ft. drive-thru carwash facility on approximately one-acre of vacant land located on the northeast corner of Business Park Drive and Poinsettia Avenue. Development of the project would include grading, utility connections, and drainage improvements. Other project improvements include a 249 sq. ft. office, nine vacuum stations, queuing lanes, and a covered trash/recycling enclosure. Vehicular access to the site is provided by one driveway located along Poinsettia Avenue. The parcel has a general plan designation of GC (General Commercial) and is zoned Vista Business Park Specific Plan. The project is consistent with the types of commercial uses allowable under the general plan’s GC land use designation, and drive-through carwashes are allowed in the Vista Business Park Specific Plan zone subject to approval of a Special Use Permit. The project site is surrounded by existing urban land uses; it is adequately served by all required public utilities and services; and development of the project would not result in any significant air quality, noise, traffic, or water quality impacts.
