Shell Carson Revitalization Project Share Print Project Name: Shell Carson Revitalization Project Project Address: 20945 South Wilmington Avenue Property Owner: Shell Oil Products U.S. Project Applicant: Equilon Enterprises LLC Project Architect: AECOM Applications: Specific Plan No. 11-11 Development Agreement No. 8-15 Tentative Tract Map No. 71748-11 Status: Under Review Project Planner: Richard Rojas, AICP, Senior Planner Exhibits: Specific Plan (Feb 2014) (52 MB) CEQA Review: Notice of Preparation and Initial Study (Oct 2010) Notice of Preparation Scoping Report (Dec 2010) Notice of Availability (Feb 2014) Draft EIR (Feb 2014) (Available at City Hall) Project Description: The proposed project includes adoption and implementation of the Specific Plan. The Specific Plan establishes land use designations and design standards and guidelines for the project site. The Specific Plan provides a bridge between the Carson General Plan and individual development applications in the Specific Plan area, applying and adding greater specificity to the policies and concepts of the General Plan for the project site. The plan provides a complete blueprint for development of the project site. The Specific Plan provides land use and infrastructure planning for the East and West Distribution Facilities as well as the Revitalization Areas within the proposed project site. The expansion of overall distribution facilities storage and loading capacity is proposed to occur in the West Distribution Facility. The East Distribution Facility storage and loading capacity remains substantially unchanged but the utilization of that capacity will change. The railroad tracks associated with the East Distribution Facility would continue to function as currently, but the project would realign a portion of the westerly spur to avoid crossing the proposed extension of Tajauta Avenue into the site and adjust for operational needs. Infrastructure and support uses for the proposed Specific Plan include storm water basins and water quality areas, buffer areas, a railroad yard, public access road easements, and open storage for equipment and materials.
