The westside of Turlock may soon have its own trampoline park, if the Turlock Planning Commission approves a Conditional Use Permit for the proposed project.
NUCP Turlock LLC, a company owned by developer Steven Thomas, is seeking to build a Get Air Trampoline Park at 1350 W. Main St., next to the existing Grocery Outlet and Planet Fitness businesses. The trampoline park will be built in a 12,280 square foot suite in the existing retail center.
The trampoline park is proposed to include areas where visitors can play dodge ball, basketball, rock climb, maneuver through obstacle courses and jump on various trampolines. Party services would also be available where guests could have food and beverages before jumping. The proposed hours of operation for the park are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
For the project to move forward, the Planning Commission would have to approve a Conditional Use Permit because the shopping center is located in a Community Commercial zoning district and an indoor trampoline park is classified as a commercial recreational use.
The only possible issue with the opening of a trampoline park at the W. Main Street commercial center, according to a report prepared by City staff, is parking. The trampoline park has the potential to generate a parking demand of 245 spaces and there are only 426 parking spaces available at the commercial center.
However, the trampoline park submitted a parking usage study that showed that the highest demand for parking at the commercial center is during the noon hour on Thursday and Saturday and on Tuesday between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. Get Air stated that their peak hours of operation are usually between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. most days. Even during peak times, that would mean less than 40 percent of the parking is occupied.
City staff did not receive any calls or letters regarding the proposed trampoline park and staff is recommending the approval of the Conditional Use Permit.
The Turlock Planning Commission will meet to consider the Get Air Trampoline Park project at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Yosemite Room at City Hall, 156 S. Broadway. The meeting is open to the public.
