My name is Rik Williams and I am Chevron’s remediation project manager at the San Luis Obispo Tank Farm site. I work closely with my colleague, Bill Almas, who manages redevelopment on the site. Bill and I are excited to be moving ahead with plans to revitalize the property. This website is designed to provide information to keep you informed about our progress. We welcome your participation.

After years of working on plans for the future use of our SLO Tank Farm Road property, the project’s Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) was released in early January 2014. The proposal for the 332-acre Chevron Tank Farm Road site includes 250+ acres of open space, new recreation areas and trails, a business park, land for sports fields, and site remediation and restoration. We are excited to be sharing our vision and hope you will agree it is a good plan for one of San Luis Obispo’s most important corridors. The FEIR can be found at the City website.  In addition, the Regional Water Quality Control Board for the Central Coast will approve the Remedial Action Plan (RAP) mid-year 2014.  The original RAP, submitted in 2007, is posted on the RWQCB SLO Tank Farm Geotracker website.  This RAP is currently being updated and will be posted on Geotracker upon RWQCB approval.

The City of SLO Planning Commission recommended to SLO City Council certification of the FEIR and portions of the Airport Area Specific Plan (AASP) and reviewed the Public Facility Financing Plan (PFFP), which is part of the AASP, at a special meeting July 30. The SLO City Council is scheduled to consider certification of the FEIR and AASP Amendments on September 2. Previously, the Airport Land Use Commission had approved the AASP Amendments. Additional information can be found in the staff reports for the SLO City Planning Commission and Airport Land Use Commission.

Our project website, www.slotankfarm.com, will be updated as we move forward. Please contact me via the email address below if you are a member of an organization that would like a presentation about our proposed plans.

We appreciate your continued interest in our SLO Tank Farm Remediation and Development Project.
