In a nod to the explosive growth now taking place —and expected in the future — when it comes to Manteca’s role in distributing goods in the 17 million consumer strong Northern California Mega Region, a fourth truck parking lot is being proposed.
There is already a 153-space truck parking lot in place in the CenterPoint Business Park at Airport Way and Roth Road. The business park also has a 486-space truck parking lot proposal making its way through the approval process. A 53-trailer parking lot was approved 13 months ago for a 2.19-acre area at the corner of Bessemer Avenue and Carnegie Street within the Manteca Industrial Park.
The latest proposal is for a 30-stall truck trailer parking lot on 2 acres within the Manteca Industrial just down from the U.S. Postal Annex with access to both Industrial Park Drive and Vanderbilt Circle. If the Manteca Planning Commission approves the 30-space trailer parking when they meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Civic Center, 1001 W. Center St., it will bring the number of existing and approved truck parking stalls in yards designed exclusively for the purpose of renting space in Manteca to 722.
The latest proposal is most likely to become the next one to be open for business. That’s because the site is already paved as it has been used in the past for overflow truck parking for a nearby industrial park user.
The city’s only major requirement in addition to landscaping is that the existing lighting and fencing be upgraded.
The applicant plans to install 6-foot wrought iron fencing with gates at access points from both Vanderbilt Circle and Industrial Park Drive.
Not only is Industrial Park Drive an established truck route but is also designated as an SJAA route that longer trucks can legally use.
