Document Description
The Applicant (Permittee), Walter Postelwait, On the Rise Properties, LLC, applied for a Conditional Use Permit (CUP-S-2023-0004) on March 13, 2023. The request is to construct a 66,431 square-foot industrial tilt-up building on a 7.67-acre vacant site. The building is intended for warehousing and manufacturing bakery ingredients and will have 38,582 square feet of warehouse space, 6,600 square feet of office space, and a 21,000 square-foot manufacturing area. The building will have two driveway entrances from West Los Angeles Avenue, providing access to the 91 parking areas and the 8 loading docks located on the west and east sides of the building. The site will include 28.3 percent of new landscaping and the removal of four Coast Live Oaks and two Peruvian pepper trees. To mitigate the loss of these trees, the Permittee is required to plant upsized replacement trees on-site or pay into the City’s Tree Mitigation Fund. The site is currently vacant and will require approximately 30,000 cubic yards of excavation and 19,000 cubic yards of fill. New grading will remain at least 100 feet away from the top of the bank of Alamos Creek to the west (Drainage A), and over 140 feet away from an existing concrete drainage feature to the east (Drainage B). Drainage A and B are considered jurisdictional drainage features on-site, and they fall under the jurisdiction of the Army Corps of Engineers, the Regional Water Quality Control Board, and the California Department of Fish and Game.
