Newark City Council could vote Thursday on whether to adopt documents that will move the construction of a new distribution center forward.
Councilmembers will decide whether to adopt an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for the construction of the Cherry Logistics Center, a proposal to build a 575,000-square-feet distribution facility at 38811 Cherry Street.
City council will meet at 7:30 p.m. at city hall, 37101 Newark Blvd.
The planned project calls for the demolition of the current 230,000-square-feet industrial building. It is a proposal that resulted from a partnership between American Realty Advisors and McShane Development Co., according to a previous press release from Chicago-based McShane Real Estate.
Officials have said that they anticipate the center will be open for occupancy during the fourth quarter of 2013.
Occupying approximately 29.5 acres, Cherry Logistics Center will be located within one mile of Interstate 880 off Mowry Avenue and within a block of the Silliman Activity and Family Aquatic Center.
Also at Thursday’s council meeting:
- Two public hearings will be held. One is regarding a request for a conditional use permit for the establishment of a fitness center at 6347 Jarvis Ave. within the Raley’s Shopping Center. The other is regarding requests for a conditional use permit and approval of a planned unit development to build a veterinary surgery center (Ohlone Veterinary Emergency) at 5600 John Muir Drive.
- Council will decide on a request for reappointment made by planning commissioner Karen Bridges and will vote on declaring a vacancy on the planning commission as a result of commissioner Marla Blowers’ decision to not seek reappointment.
