Chevron Tank Farm Remediation and Development Project                    Draft EIR is available HERE.

Chevron is proposing remediation and development on the 332-acre former tank farm property. The tank farm was decommissioned in the 1990's and is now vacant. Chevron is proposing remediation of the property which will include several activities expected to occur over a 3-year period: demolishing existing buildings, excavating top soil, site re-contouring, and capping. The remediation is intended to address crude oil contamination from the 1926 fire and other contamination resulting from operation of the tank farm. Chevron is also proposing development of approximately 800,000 square feet of floor area for business park and service-commercial uses. Proposed development would occur in several phases over a 25 year period. Chevron is proposing a development agreement with the City which would provide reimbursement and “freezing” of certain development fees in exchange for construction of area wide infrastructure. The project site is currently within the County of San Luis Obispo but is within the City's sphere of Influence and is designated for development in the Airport Area Specific Plan (AASP).

Johnson Avenue Housing Project

The San Luis Coastal Unified School District has submitted project plans to develop 88 residential units in seven separate buildings on 4.36-acre site.  An initial study of environmental impact has been prepared which evaluates certain issue areas in detail where technical studies have been prepared and mitigation measures can be developed.  For some issue areas that are more complex, the initial study provides a workscope for the ultimate evaluation of items in the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) prepared for the project.  The initial study is provided through the link below.

A scoping meeting was held before the Planning Commission on May 9, 2012.  Based on the comments received at that meeting some refinements to the workscope for the EIR were made.  Here is a link to the approved minutes of that meeting.

Prefumo Creek Commons

This Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) evaluates the proposed Prefumo Creek Commons Project which is located at 11980 Los Osos Valley Road (LOVR) and is currently undeveloped and utilized for commercial agriculture. The proposed project would include annexation of approximately 31 acres of agricultural land located at the edge of the City limits of the City of San Luis Obispo and development of 16.7 acres west of Prefumo Creek with a regional shopping center.  This proposed regional commercial center would include 188,470 square feet of new retail space with six separate retail buildings along with 838 on-site parking spaces.  In order to partially offset development of prime agricultural land, 11.9 acres, the majority of which is east of Prefumo Creek, would be set aside as dedicated to open space.  An additional 2.3 acres would be dedicated as right-of-way for the extension of Froom Ranch Way from LOVR to Prefumo Creek and along the project site's LOVR frontage.

The Four Creeks Project is a City-initiated General Plan amendment and rezoning project to designate 18 acres of industrial land for high density residential uses.  A portion of the site would be designated Community Commercial to allow for proposed mixed-use buildings.  Two development plans have been submitted covering different portions of the property. The Tumbling Waters Development Plan covers 11.63 acres on 861 and 953 Orcutt Road. The Creekston Development Plan covers 5.6 acres on 791 Orcutt, 3330 Broad and 3360 Broad. A total of 264 residential units and 10,000 square feet of commercial floor area are proposed.
