City Yards Project EIR

The City proposes the City Yards Master Plan, which would redevelop the existing 14.2 acre site located at 2500 Michigan Avenue. The existing maintenance and operation facilities at the City Yards site no longer meet the City’s functional needs and space requirements for operations. Uses at the City Yards site currently include Fleet Maintenance, Street Maintenance, Resource Recovery and Recycling, Traffic Operations, Facilities Services, Facilities Management, Custodial Services, Hazardous Materials Waste Storage, Water Resources, and Fire Training Yard. As part of the City Yards Master, the existing on-site buildings/improvements would be demolished/removed and redeveloped to house the City’s current uses. In total, the project would result in approximately 51,013 sf of net new facilities/buildings (excluding parking garage). The proposed project would provide additional space for City employees in other locations to move to the City Yards Site.

Parking is proposed on the northeastern portion of the Project site within a new multi-level parking structure with up to 5 levels and up to a maximum of 617 spaces. Access to the parking structure would be provided from Michigan Avenue at its eastern terminus (across from the Bergamot Arts Center entrance). Parking would also be provide within the interior of the site for fleet/utility vehicles and for deliveries. Additionally, the City Yards Master Plan proposes to build new primary and secondary vehicle pathways to access the interior of the City Yards site. A new vehicle pathway would be provided across the site. connecting Michigan Avenue and Delaware Avenue. The primary point of entry/exit for fleet and utility vehicles would be from Delaware Avenue while the secondary entrance/exit would be from Michigan Avenue.

The City Yards Master Plan would be implemented gradually over 10 years with the following phasing plan: Package A, Package B, Package C, and Package D (with Packages B-D timeframes dependent on funding availability). Package A would proceed first, with a completion timeframe of 2019-2024. The remaining Packages would follow – with these phases either occurring sequentially or overlapping with a completion date by 2028
