Document Title
Large Format Retail/Superstore Zoning Text Amendments
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Document Description
The proposed Zoning Amendments include changes to remove the potential for future grocery store uses from within the East of 101 planning sub-area and to prohibit "Superstore" use city-wide. The proposed definition of "Superstore" is summarized as a large retail center (over 80,000 sf) with over 5% of floor area dedicated to full service food/beverage/grocery sales. Proposed alterations to the zoning ordinance will also require revised or new definitions for the following uses: Convenience Market, Large Format Retail, Grocery Store, Supermarket, and Superstore. The changes to these definitions provide clarification by differentiating these uses from the proposed to be prohibited "Superstores."
