Planning Commission approves zone change for Arco project

The Colusa Planning Commission last week recommended the City Council amend the city’s general plan to pave the way for a new Arco gas station.

The commission approved changing the zoning of the land, located just south of Round Table Pizza, from high density residential to general commercial planned development, which will afford the developer more flexibility to achieve a more desirable overall development project, while enhancing review by the city, officials said.

Developer Amarjit Cheema, of Yuba City, calls his vision for the approximately six acres along Highway 20 the “Colusa Town Center,” which will likely have a Starbucks Coffee Shop and a Taco Bell.

The purpose of the zoning change – from land originally intended for additional apartment buildings – is to allow for a multitude of commercial uses, including fueling, carwash, restaurants, retail, office, or other service-related uses, said Colusa Community Development Manager Bryan Stice.

While there are a number of environmental issues that will have to be mitigated, city officials believe the project will not be detrimental to the public health, safety or welfare of Colusa residents.

City officials estimate that total build-out of the project will take about six or seven years to complete. A major component of the proposed commercial center is the realignment of Wescott Road into a new intersection with a traffic signal, which requires concept designs approved by Caltrans, Sites said.
