City Council to Hold Public Hearing Tonight on Southeast Side Grocery Store

The public will get a chance to weigh-in tonight on the proposed development of a 124,000-square-foot Fry’s Marketplace grocery store on a 16-acre site at the northeast corner of South Houghton Road and East 22nd Street. The development also would have a 9,300-square-foot, nine-pump gas station and two separate retail or restaurant buildings of 12,900 and 4,500 square feet.

The Houghton East Neighborhood Plan says buildings at the site can't be taller than 20 feet, but Brentwood Development is asking for the rules to be changed to allow for 26 feet.

The public hearing will be held during tonight's Mayor and Council meeting that starts at 5:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, 255 W. Alameda St.
