Lodi to repeat hearing on Wal-Mart environment study

The Lodi City Council voted 5-0 Tuesday to rescind its Dec. 10 approval of environmental impact report that opened the door for development of a Wal-Mart Supercenter at Lower Sacramento Road and Kettleman Lane.

The City Council will take formal action nullifying its Dec. 10 vote at a future meeting, and then schedule a date to again consider the environmental study. That meeting will be held at Hutchins Street Square Community Center, rather than the smaller Carnegie Forum.

The City Council took Tuesday’s vote in response to a letter from a local citizens’ group that demanded the City nullify the Dec. 10 vote or face a lawsuit. The group incorrectly claims the City restricted access to that meeting. As a pragmatic cost-saving move, the City Council decided a second meeting would be less burdensome to taxpayers than fighting a lawsuit. The estimated cost of a lawsuit to taxpayers is $60,000.

As a result, Wednesday’s Lodi Planning Commission meeting scheduled for Hutchins Street Square Community Center has been canceled. The Commission was to consider several matters related to the Wal-Mart Supercenter and Lodi Shopping Center.
