Draft EIR for proposed CarMax Dealership

As the Lead Agency under the California Environmental Quality Act, the City of Pleasant Hill has completed a Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) for the CarMax Automobile Dealer, and the Draft EIR is currently available for public review and comment.

The project site is located at 65 and 77 Chilpancingo Parkway and includes demolition of the existing unoccupied former Kmart building and an existing operational McDonald’s restaurant and construction of up to approximately 45,289 square feet of structures/facilities for a CarMax automobile dealership on approximately 9.95 acres, constructed in two phases beginning in late 2017.  

The Draft EIR has identified potential project issues, including: aesthetics, air quality/greenhouse gas emissions, geology and soil, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology and water quality, noise, tribal cultural resources, among other issues. After mitigation, the project would not have any significant unavoidable impacts, nor impacts which would be cumulatively considerable. Copies of the Draft EIR and all documents referenced in the EIR are available for public review at the Planning Division in the City of Pleasant Hill City Hall offices and the city’s website: The 45-day public review period for the Draft EIR ends on May 25. For further information, contact Troy Fujimoto, project planner, at (925) 671-5224 or
