CEQA Status: Consideration and possible adoption of a Mitigated Negative Declaration. According to the proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration, the proposed project would have potentially significant effects on Biological and Cultural Resources unless mitigation measures are adopted. The project site is not on any of the lists of hazardous waste sites enumerated under Government Code Section 65962.5.

Request: Approval of a use permit to allow the construction of a new light industrial building with approximately 400,500 sq. ft. of floor area which includes approximately 391,934 sq. ft. of warehouse space and 8,566 sq. ft. of office space. No tenants have been identified, however the warehouse is intended for wine storage. On-site parking for 241 vehicles, 22 truck/trailer spaces, landscaping, and signage are also included with the proposal. Exterior building materials include tex-coat concrete tilt-up wall panels with a multi-color paint scheme and multiple score lines/reveals and glass storefronts. A lot line adjustment is also proposed to create the proposed 23.2 acre development area with a 21.9 acre property to the east resulting from the lot reconfiguration. The project site does not have direct access from or frontage on Devlin Road but will be accessed via a new driveway on Devlin Road within an easement across the 21.9 acre property. Other than the driveway, no development is proposed on the easterly property. A two-way left turn lane on Devlin Road will be constructed along the project frontage. The project will connect to municipal water and sewer services provided by the City of American Canyon and the Napa Sanitation District (NSD), respectively. Annexation to NSD will be required prior to the provision of services. The project is proposed on a 23.2 acre portion of two lots totaling 44.8 on the west side of Devlin Road, adjoining Suscol Creek, within the Industrial Park: Airport Compatibility (IP:AC) zoning district. APN’s: 057-170-008 & 019. Napa.
