Central Point, Ore. — Costco’s planned warehouse move to Central Point was given the green light by the City Council on Thursday night. The vote was unanimous to approve the proposed warehouse facility and fuel center.
No public comment was taken on the issue at Thursday night’s meeting. In the plan, they’ll build a new location on 18 acres at the corner of Hamrick and Table Rock roads.
NBC5 News first told you last month that two parties appealed the move. Calvin Martin and David Smith asked the city to look at whether the zoning was appropriate for the members-only warehouse.
Both men also brought concerns about the traffic impact study being done by a firm of Costco’s choice. Those appeals were overturned.
After Thursday night’s meeting, appeals to the project must be made in the following 21 days at the state level, through the Land Use Board of Appeals.
