FedEx Delivery Facility Coming In Just East Of Chino Airport

With Councilman Marc Lucio dissenting, The Chino City Council Tuesday night approved the construction of a 503,000 square foot FedEx parcel delivery facility on 74.4 acres on the southwest corner of Flight and Merrill avenues just east of Chino Airport.
The project was originally submitted by  Scannell Properties in 2016, at that time calling for a development covering 140 acres, including property extending onto the airport land itself.  In 2017, the land at Chino Airport was removed from the project’s scope.
The $90 million construction phase of the project does not include a $100 million cargo conveyor system that will go into the building. The project fits within the Chino Airport Business Park and Commerce Center.
The Chino Planning Commission reviewed the project on June 17, 2019, and recommended on a 4-to-1 vote approval of the project’s land use map and amendment and the certification of the project’s environmental impact report. Though Director of Development Services Nick Ligouri said some of the impacts of the project cannot be fully mitigated, a condition imposed on the project prohibits FedEx trucks with three or more axles from using Kimball Avenue between Euclid and Hellman avenues.
