“In our view, city staff and the commission, by recommending for approval every element of the zone changes and variances sought and a building not a whit smaller than Kroger originally requested, effectively rewrote a shopping center into a zone to accommodate a single big-box structure far beyond anything the neighborhood and its streets can support. This is saving our Bluegrass with a vengeance. If this zone change with its egregious variances gets final council approval Aug. 13, we expect more to follow.”
