PALMDALE – A Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealership will be added to Palmdale’s auto mall under an agreement approved by the City Council. The city will provide 3.1 acres at the northeast corner of Carriage Way and Avenue Q to Ron Emard for $810,000. The land will be used for a satellite dealership of Emard’s Harley-Davidson of Lancaster. “What is happening here is the stimulation of more revenue,” said Councilman Richard Loa. The City Council approved the deal Monday night on a 4-0 vote, with Councilman Mike Dispenza absent.

Additional amenities for the dealership could include areas for motorcycle club meetings and charity and promotional events, and a rider school. There is room for expansion for additional showroom space and possibly a service area. The dealership could be up and running in about a year after all the necessary approvals are obtained. Emard said it is premature to discuss construction plans until those approvals are in hand. In keeping with similar land transactions at the auto mall, the company will not actually pay for the property. Instead, the city would write off the $810,000 sales price through sales tax revenue generated by the new business over the next 10 years. Jim Skeen, (661) 267-5743 last_img
