EPC Approves Costco Project

By City of Eastvale

EASTVALE, CA – The City of Eastvale is proud to announce that Costco, the nationally famous membership “warehouse” store chain will be opening in the city. The Eastvale Planning Commission unanimously (4-0) approved the Costco project at its meeting on Wednesday, November 16, 2016.

“Costco is coming to Eastvale!” said City Manager Michele Nissen. “We are very pleased to be adding this new shopping opportunity for our residents, and to welcome Costco to our city.”

Today’s announcement followed the approval by the Eastvale Planning Commission of a project that includes:

  • A 158,000-square-foot retail warehouse,
  • Upto a 30-position gasoline fueling station, and
  • A state-of-the-art self-service car wash, among the first of its kind in California for Costco.

The Commission also approved Costco’s operation of a tire center and the sale of alcoholic beverages. The chain is known for its selection of fine wines and spirits.

According to City Manager Nissen, retail sales at the Costco store are conservatively estimated to add more than $1-million annually to the City’s coffers in the form of sales taxes.

Costco Director of Real Estate Jenifer Murillo, who spoke to the Eastvale Planning Commission on behalf of the project, praised the work of City staff, who worked closely with both Costco and Goodman, the developer of the retail in which Costco is located, to address and resolve a number of issues. “This was the fastest process we’ve ever been through,” said Murillo, who manages the development of Costco stores in several western states.
