Waiting for the Nuts to come out

Walmart has approached the city of Lompoc about putting in a super-center down the street from their current location at the north end of town. Don't tell my wife...

Lompoc city officials confirmed Tuesday that Wal-Mart representatives have inquired about the possibility of building a “super center” on 40 acres fronting West Central Avenue at V Street.
Wal-Mart representatives presented a preliminary site plan to the city Planning Department on Nov. 17, and are scheduled to meet again with planning officials this morning, apparently to discuss development procedures.

The preliminary site plan showed that Wal-Mart is considering a store with 207,505 square feet and with seven other lots on 15.49 acres that could hold various retail shops. The largest of the outlying parcels is 6.11 acres.Plans also include a gas station on the site.

The site is zoned for “Business Park” and would have to be changed to “Planned Commercial Development” to accommodate a super center, said Arleen Pelster, city community development director. A General Plan amendment also would be required, she said.

City Administrator Gary Keefe emphasized the preliminary nature of the inquiry and said that no application has been filed with the city.

Meanwhile, I anxiously await the kooks who will invariably be drawn to town in an effort to stop evil Giant.
