Council approves new commercial development
Property rezoned for business park and commercial services
–At its Tuesday evening meeting the Paso Robles City Council unanimously approved a 212-acre development of property in east Paso Robles, at the eastern end of Wisteria Lane, north of Highway 46 East. The approval included amending the city’s general plan to re-designate the land for commercial and business uses.
The plan includes removing one oak tree that has a hollow trunk and replacing that tree with a new one. A new street, to be named the Erskine Parkway, will connect Highway 46 to Airport and Dry Creek roads and cross the Huer Huero Creek by a bridge. Wisteria Road and a new Dallon Road extension will connect Erskine Parkway to Golden Hill Road. An easement is provided to the city for a 20-ft wide public trail between public property and the Huer Huero Creek.
A non-exclusive easement will also be provided to the city over the area identified as the 100-year flood plain of the Huer Huero Creek, allowing the city the on-going ability to use Huer Huero Creek for groundwater recharge purposes.
The property is jointly owned by Tom Erskine and Ranch and Coast Properties, Inc, and Roll Real Estate Development, LLC, a Wonderful Company subsidiary which runs Justin Vineyards. The application, filed by Kirk Consulting on behalf of the property owners plans to subdivide three existing parcels into 13 lots that total 77.3 acres and leave one 134.7 acre lot undeveloped for the time being. The plan requires that the land be rezoned from parks and open space and residential agriculture to commercial light industrial and planned industrial.
