Wal-Mart replacing Nob Hill

Original post made by Stacey on Feb 12, 2012

As it says in the staff report, Wal-Mart applied for a Zoning Certificate to operate a supermarket as a permitted use at the old Nob Hill location on Santa Rita Rd. within the operating hours and delivery limits set forth in the existing Conditions for Approval for PUD 84-4 (Ordinance 1215).

The zoning administrator approved the application as there was nothing to trigger a design review. It's a grocery store replacing a grocery store. The decision can be appealed, yet for the Council to realistically overturn it (to avoid any potential lawsuit), they need someone to step forth with a legitimate reason for why the zoning administrator was wrong to approve the application; to show how the application does trigger a design review.

Any ideas? I'd be concerned if Wal-Mart did operate in a manner inconsistent with the existing Conditions for Approval. What recourse do we have if that ends up being the case?
