AMAZON NORTHERLY ACCESS
City File Nos. PLNG2018-048 & 049
DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSAL: The applicant proposes to construct a new access driveway off of Wharf Road located near the northwest corner of the property such that truck traffic may be rerouted away from Center Drive, reconfigure an existing parking lot and relocate an existing guard shack. The proposed access drive will be approximately 825 linear feet long by 30 feet wide and will require approximately 800 cubic yards of topsoil strippings, 1,205 cubic yards of excavation, and 7,100 cubic yards of fill. The project will reconfigure approximately 50,000 square feet of the northern portion of the existing vehicle parking lot (approximately 128 passenger stalls removed with a total of 789 passenger stalls to remain) to accommodate new trailer parking, all within the boundaries of the existing parking lot. An existing guard shack at the south end of the property may be removed and replaced with a new guard shack at the north end of the site to accommodate the shift in access location.
