Document Description
Request to amend the general plan and zoning designations of a 23± acre parcel from Agriculture and General Agriculture (A-2-40) to Planned Development (P-D), to allow for development of a truck parking and dispatch facility that will serve a fleet of tractors with refrigeration trailers that haul goods for Safeway and Albertson’s. The proposal includes development of a 2.6-acre paved parking lot, consisting of 40-stalls for the parking of tractor-trailers and 21 parking stalls for passenger vehicles. The project includes the construction of a 15,000± square foot maintenance bay for minor repairs of the on-site fleet, and a 5,000± square foot proposed office which will be used for administrative activities, such as management, accounting, human resources, and dispatch. The site is currently improved with a 300 square foot shed which will remain on-site if approved and utilized for storage. A fleet of 25 trucks and 35 trailers will utilize the site for parking. Hours of operation are proposed to be 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on weekends. 20 employees on a minimum shift and up to 30 employees on a maximum shift, including drivers and office staff, will access the site per day. Up to 8 truck trips are anticipated to occur per day; The truck trips arriving at and departing the site consist primarily of long distance trips with drivers traveling off-site multiple days at a time. Trailers will arrive on-site empty and pick up freight off-site. Access will be taken via a single driveway onto County-maintained Welty Road. Domestic water and wastewater will be handled by a proposed well and private on-site wastewater treatment system (OWTS), respectively. Water runoff will be maintained on-site via a proposed stormwater drainage basin. The applicant is proposing a 15-foot-wide strip of oleander along the project frontage to screen the parking area from the roadway.
