The appeal also requests that the commission review news plans submitted to the city.
The drug store chain still seeks to demolish the apartment building that it owns adjacent to the property, but the space wouldn’t be used for parking, according to the revised proposal.
The new plan is scaled down to 72 parking spaces — down from 94 originally proposed.
In addition, Drug Mart is no longer asking to take the 13.5 feet from the neighboring home at 1425 Grace Avenue, but the company would still like to take a portion of the northwest corner of that property.
The plan also includes a 15-feet-wide sidewalk along Cohasset Avenue. The original plans call for a sidewalk that was only 10 feet wide.
“They’ve made a number of revisions over the past three months,” said Dru Siley, the city’s director of planning and development. “Some of those changes are a direct result of comments and concerns from the neighbors. And I think the project has gotten better over time because of their input.”
Discount Drug Mart — with its multi-million-dollar renovation already under way at Lakewood Plaza— has plans to move its eastern Lakewood location to the corner of Cohassett and Detroit avenues.
According to the rules of the planning commission, a business has 10 days to appeal a decision. Siley said Discount Drug Mart submitted its appeal July 13.
The planning commission will first to decide whether there’s enough new information to consider an appeal before taking any action on the new plans, Siley added.
