No surprise in this news, reported by the Contra Costa Times Elisabeth Nardi. The Walnut Creek planning commissioners Thursday night agreed that the City Council should approve the downsized proposal to build a 92,000-square-foot Neiman Marcus in Broadway Plaza.
The commissioners made their recommendation for approval at the behest of city staff—and despite complaints from some speakers at last night’s meeting who said they believe the plan still has flaws, including in how it will provide additional parking to accommodate Neiman Marcus customers. One of the naysayers was Ed Dimmick, who is suing over the project’s environmental impact report.
The City Council will review the project at its April 21 meeting. Click here to read more about last night’s meeting.
