Zoning panel deals setback to Wal-Mart Supercenter

The Wal-Mart Supercenter proposed for Perrysburg Township hit a snag last night when the township zoning commission turned down the store's site plan and asked to see a new one next month.

"It appears to be an incomplete site plan that we have to review tonight," Chairman Robert Black said.

The commission voted 4-0 against approving the plan, with no discussion. Member Jeff Schaller was absent.

Mr. Black said the township received the site plan on Thursday and found 23 problems with it.

He gave a letter detailing those problems last night to Nick Miller of Atwell-Hicks, the engineering firm working with Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to develop the project.

According to the letter, among items missing from the site plan were dimensions for future outlots, a profile view for the proposed road, a name for the proposed road, or the fax number of the owner on the title page.

"That was a joke," Mr. Miller said.

He said the site plan could have been approved with conditions. The city of Perrysburg's planning commission approved it with conditions June 29.

The 217,572-square-foot store is planned for 35 acres along U.S. 20 off Simmons Road.
