Lorenzini Self-Storage & Automotive - Project Location Map

The proposed Willow Avenue Commercial Project would consist of a self-storage facility, containing 846 storage units in three buildings ranging in height from one- to three-stories, as well as an automotive service center that includes a car wash, an oil change facility, and a tire store/automobile shop.

The project is proposed on a currently vacant 7.1-acre site on the southeast side of Willow Avenue, across from Valley Bible Church, south of Hwy 4, north of the BNSF Rail Line, and northeast of Palm Avenue.    

The total floor area of the eight new buildings would be approximately 150,000 sq. ft. The project also would include approximately 83 parking spaces, most of them at the automotive service center. The self-storage facility and automotive service center would operate independently of each other and be separated by a security fence or a wall. Access to the project site would be via one median-divided driveway off Willow Avenue.

As required under the California Environmental Quality Act, the City has prepared an Initial Study (IS) for the Willow Avenue Commercial Center project. The Initial Study determined that a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) needed to be prepared to evaluate the environmental impacts of the proposed project.  The 20-day public review period for this IS/MND starts on June 22, 2018 and ends on Thursday July 12, 2018.  Comments may be sent to either Holly Smyth (Planning Director) or Victor Carniglia (Project Manager) no later than 5:00 p.m. on July 12, 2018.  The Willow Avenue Commercial Center Project, including the IS/MND, will be considered by the Planning Commission at the regular Planning Commission meeting scheduled for July 16, 2018.
