Planning Commission to look at Nut Tree retail policy change

By April 16, 2014

VACAVILLE — The Planning Commission will look at a policy change Tuesday that would allow a European Wax Center to locate in the Nut Tree retail complex.

Businesses currently tagged as “health and beauty services” are limited both in location and total square footage in order to ensure that the Nut Tree project remains a true retail center as opposed to one with a large number of personal services, according to a commission staff report.

The Vacaville City Council in 2010 capped total square footage of businesses defined as “health and beauty services” to 15,000 square feet. Approximately 37 percent of that area is used by four tenants in Phase 1 for a total of 5,603 square feet. The wax center, which will be in Phase 3, will take up 1,225 square feet.

While it hasn’t reached the maximum, the Nut Tree Policy Plan currently allows health and beauty tenants only in certain buildings in Phase 1 and not yet where the wax center requests to locate, which is on East Monte Vista Avenue between Sleep Train and Starbucks.

The nearly 10-acre Phase 3 will consist of 62,300 square feet of floor area, seven buildings and 446 parking spots.

If OK’d Tuesday, the city will look for approval from the City Council at a future date.

The Planning Commission meets at 7 p.m. at the City Council Chambers, 650 Merchant St.

    What a bunch of Little Hitlers in the Planning Commission (well, City government in general too). They always say, " We need businesses... we need to spend money promoting Vacaville to attract new businesses" but when new businesses show up, then they say, "we don't want your kind... you can't have a permit... you can't have a sign... you attract the wrong kind of customers... etc." What's a new business gotta do in Vacaville? Give more generously to a Councilmember's campaign fund?
