Carson Revitalization Project
The Carson Revitalization Project (CRP) is a master plan for the redevelopment of the Shell Carson Distribution Facility located at 20945 South Wilmington Avenue.
The CRP project will accomplish the following:
- Expand facility capacity to meet regional energy demand;
- Revitalize currently underutilized portions of the property;
- Provide economic benefits in the form of increased employment and tax revenues; and
- Incorporate sustainable environmental and economic features.
The CRP allows the Shell Terminal to continue its key role as a petroleum and renewable fuel distribution facility for Southern California. Additionally, it will allow for the development of portions of the 448 acre property for retail, Business Park, and light industrial uses.
Shell initiated the CRP to ensure that the Carson facility could continue in its regional fuel distribution role and to support the Carson community through aesthetic enhancements, jobs and taxes. The project is also part of a commitment by Shell to support the request of the City of Carson to develop a plan that would help revitalize an industrial area and property that is currently underutilized.
As part of the planning process Shell has submitted a DRAFT Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for review and released the report for comment on February 10th, 2014. The EIR is available for review and comment. Please visit the city of Carson website at www.carson.ca.us; comments are due by March 26th, 2014.
