Document Description
The proposed Project consists of the annexation of 75.31 acres into the City of Selma. A horizontal mixed-use residential and commercial development project is proposed on the northern 39.1 acres of the annexation area. No development is proposed for the remaining 36.21 acres. A total of 600 apartment units are planned for the Project and approximately 40,000 square feet of retail and food service uses, and a 100-key hotel are anticipated in the commercial area. A Vesting Tentative Subdivision/Tract Map is also proposed that would create 17 individual lots and 3 outlots for building pads, parking lots, apartment sites, the public park and privately maintained roads within the development. The proposed subdivision lots range in size from 0.10 acres to 4.85 acres. Site construction will include internal access roads, lighting and site landscaping. Stillman Street is planned to be widened and improved, which will divert traffic from E. Floral Avenue, as this will be the main entrance for the residential units. Fancher Street will be improved and will connect to Floral Avenue. The arterial streets and collector streets will be dedicated to the City of Selma, and the City will be responsible for maintenance of these streets. Local private streets will be owned and maintained by the Development Association. The retail and hotel developments will operate seven days per week with hours of operation ranging from 12-24 hours.
