Apple Valley Town Council Approves Participation Agreement for Distribution Center

According to the Victorville Daily Press, June 10, 2015, the Town Council approved a $1.2-million development participation agreement. The town’s approval paves the way to build the 1.3-million square-foot project known as Apple Valley Distribution Center. Industry observers are speculating the project will allow Big Lots to relocate its Rancho Cucamonga distribution operations to Apple Valley. The distribution center would occupy 106 acres near Navajo Road and LaFayette Street, north of Apple Valley Airport. The town will invest its money in transportation and infrastructure funding, and defer another $225,000 in contributions until a planned extension of Dachshund Avenue is needed. Town staff members estimate the project will generate 300 construction jobs, roughly 450 permanents jobs, permit and development impact fees of $2.3 million and $600,000 a year in property taxes. If plans are approved, the distribution center’s construction would help expand infrastructure improvements in the area and act as a catalyst in attracting more industrial firms to north Apple Valley and other parts of the Victor Valley, town staff members said.
