YC planning panel OKs car dealership sites

August 25, 2007

Plans to move John L. Sullivan Dodge Chrysler from Marysville to Yuba City cleared another hurdle this week.

The Planning Commission on Wednesday recommended that the City Council OK a general plan amendment for what would be the new location for the dealership formerly known as Don McCullough Dodge Chrysler.

The amendment, rezoning and development plan would accommodate plans for the dealership on 40,000 square feet at Harter Parkway and Highway 20 to show more than 400 cars and provide room to sell, service and maintain new and used cars.

The plan will be sent to the council for its consideration on Sept. 18.

Yuba City Community Development Director Aaron Busch said the plan has a good chance of passing.

“I don’t have a crystal ball, but a favorable recommendation from the Planning Commission normally results in a favorable vote from the City Council,” Busch said.

Another car dealership plan was approved at the same meeting. The new Yuba City Toyota/Lincoln/Mercury dealership will occupy 66,000 square feet and will be located in the same vicinity as the relocated Sullivan dealership.
