PROJECT LOCATION: The proposed project site is located within the existing Higgins Marketplace and is located south of the existing approximately 30,000-square-foot Holiday Market Grocery Store (21656 Higgins Road) and is further located at the intersection of Higgins Road and Woodridge Drive. The project site is further located approximately 1,000 feet east of Highway 49 and south of the intersection of Combie Road and Higgins Road within unincorporated Southern Nevada County. Assessor's Parcel Number: 057-260-024. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The project as proposed is a combined application for a Development Permit (DVP20-1) to construct a proposed Fuel Station with four (4) self-service pump islands and eight (8) fueling positions adjacent the existing Holiday Market Grocery Store. Development would consist of the construction of a proposed approximately 4,524-square-foot Fuel Station canopy that would be approximately 22 feet in height for the Fuel Station and the installation of two (2) underground fuel storage tanks, consisting of one (1) 15,000-gallon tank for regular unleaded fuel and one (1) 12,000-gallon tank (split between 6,000 gallons for premium unleaded and 6,000 gallons for diesel). The proposed Fuel Station would be constructed within an existing approximately 20,000-square-foot area of the project site that has been graded, compacted with gravel and landscaped that is located south of the existing Holiday Market Grocery Store, which is contained within an existing approximately 50,000-square-foot building area that was approved for development as part of the Higgins Marketplace. Additional development of the Fuel Station would consist of the constriction of associated signage for the proposed Fuel Station which would be located within the existing Higgins Marketplace. The project as proposed also includes a request to amend the previously approved Use Permit, U04-019 (AAP20-0005), to recognize the reduction in the size of the Holiday Market Grocery Store, from approximately 50,000 square feet to approximately 30,000 square feet. The Higgins Marketplace project was originally approved by the Nevada County Board of Supervisors on August 18, 2009 (EIR04-001, GP04-005, Z04-012, PM04-020, U04-019) For full Project Description, please see the proposed Draft Addendum to the Final Environmental Impact Report.
