Walmart Annex plan hearing set
May 28, 2012
A public hearing on a contentious commercial development planned for Atascadero’s north end is slated Tuesday at 6 p.m. by the city’s planning commission.
The hearing centers around entitlements for the Del Rio Road Commercial Area Specific Plan, incorporating the already-approved 130,000-square-foot Walmart Supercenter Store on a 26.2-acre parcel at El Camino Real and Del Rio Road, and an Annex component located across the street.
On the table will be a potential recommendation to the city council to certify an environmental impact report (EIR); a General plan amendment; zoning ordinance text and map amendment; Specific Plan adoption, Specific Plan master plan for development; and vesting tentative parcel maps. As many as 44 multi-family residential units are included of this proposal.
The Annex part of the development, if eventually approved, will support food and beverage sales, general merchandise stores, restaurants and as many as six single-family residential parcels.
If planners approve, the matter will go to the city council at a date to be announced at the Tuesday session.
