Hearing to consider a request by Gary Bagnall for a Conditional Use Permit/Coastal Development Permit to allow construction of approximately 140,000 square feet of industrial floor area in two buildings on a 9.1-acre parcel. The project will result in the disturbance of approximately 7.8 acres and removal of approximately 5.9 acres of eucalyptus trees in two phases, beginning on the northern portion of the site with construction of a 46,500 square-foot industrial building in Phase I. Phase II would continue on the southern portion of the site with construction of the remaining 93,300 square feet of industrial building floor area. Improvements include the installation of an on-site water and wastewater system and two 70,000-gallon fire suppression storage tanks. The parcel is outside of the Coastal Zone, but the southern property boundary abuts the Coastal Zone boundary at the Willow Road right-of-way; therefore, required offsite improvements on Willow Road require a Coastal Development Permit. The proposed project site is within the Industrial land use category and is located at 654 Winterhaven Way, at the northwest corner of Willow Road and Winterhaven Way in the Callender-Garrett Village Reserve in Nipomo. The site is in the South County Inland Sub Area of the South County Planning Area, with offsite improvements extending into the South County Coastal Planning Area. The Principal Environmental Specialist, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary. Therefore, a Mitigated Negative Declaration (pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., and CA Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq.) has been issued on February 14, 2020 for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Air Quality, Biological Resources and Transportation and are included as conditions of approval. Anyone interested in commenting or receiving a copy of the proposed Environmental Determination should submit a written statement. Comments will be accepted up until completion of the public hearing(s).
