Developer Nick Tompkins wants permission to build a shopping center at the corner of Grand and Courtland that will include a 51,000 square-foot Food 4 Less. Council members ended up sending the revised plans back to the Planning Commission.
Many residents are concerned about the size of the Food 4 Less store in a neighborhood where there are three other grocery stores already.
There is no indication when the Planning Commission will revisit the project, which they most recently rejected on a 5-0 vote.
Mayor Tony Ferrara, who is opposed to the project, has had to recuse himself because he lives so close to the proposed shopping center.
