The proposed Project includes construction of a 17-acre campus to support a new Amazing Facts Ministry facility. The proposed Project would be constructed in two phases with buildings totaling 208,020 square feet. Phase I of the proposed Project would include a 106,800-square-foot multi-use building consisting of an auditorium/gymnasium, ministry offices, Sabbath school classrooms, a fireside chapel, an audio/visual production suite, and kitchen facilities. Phase I would also include a separate ±11,220 square-foot resource center building. Phase II would consist of a ±90,000 square-foot multi-use building which will replace the Phase I multi-use building’s function as the main sanctuary for this ministry and serve as the permanent worship facility with seating for 2,000 people. Approximately 625 on-site parking spaces would be provided as part of Phase I and an additional 275 parking spaces as part of Phase II for a total of approximately 900 spaces. The Project site would have full access at the signalized intersection of Sierra College Boulevard and Nightwatch Drive. A secondary access with right-turn in and right-turn out only would be constructed along Sierra College Boulevard approximately 450 feet east of the primary access.
