Menard Inc. is requesting approval to tear down its existing building and build a new store in its place. In addition, Menards is proposing to purchase six residential properties to the south of its existing store, remove the houses, and incorporate the land into its new store site. No access is being proposed or will be permitted from County Road B East to the new store. Access drives to a new store building would be located generally in the same area as today.
To move forward with this project, the applicant needs city council approval of the following applications: comprehensive plan amendment, zoning map amendment, conditional use permit, setback and shoreland overlay variances, public vacation of utility easement, lot combination and design review.
The project is scheduled to go before the Planning Commission on January 21, 2020 and Community Design Review Board on February 24, 2020 and before the City Council on March 9, 2020.
The Approval Process - Where does the project currently stand?
