Opponents to take case to court

Lake Oswego City Council approves redevelopment plan

Opponents plan to take case to court after meeting on Oct. 7

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. (KOIN 6) — After days of testimony, Lake Oswego’s City Council approved a plan Wednesday evening to re-develop the “Wizer Block.”

It took about an hour for council members to decide the fate of the iconic grocery store, which will now be demolished. Within three years, a new commercial and residential complex could be opened.

“We will go the distance. This is a fight worth fighting for and there are many citizens who support our position and we do feel the codes were violated,” said opponent Lita Gregg.

However, Kessi maintains his position that the plan complies with the code and is compatible with neighbors, completing Lake Oswego’s downtown vision.

The city attorney said the council can formally adopt Wednesday evening’s ruling at its next meeting on Oct. 7.

After that meeting, the opposition has 21 days to challenge the decision to Oregon’s Land Use Board of Appeals.
