Description of Proposal: Construct 2 warehouse buildings (approx. 261,500 sf and 101,150 sf) with truck docks and parking on a vacant 38-acre parcel. Includes associated infrastructure including stormwater detention and treatment, utilities, retaining walls to reduce wetland fill, site paving, and landscaping. The project proposes to fill approx. one-half acre of low quality wetlands and drainage ditches, and to provide compensatory mitigation consisting of 2.9 acres of wetland creation and enhancement. Based on the City’s adopted FEMA 2012 maps and critical areas buffers, no work is proposed in the 100-year floodplain or Sotain Creek to the east.
