Public Invited to Comment on Costco

Have more thoughts on the plans for a new Costco store? The public will have another chance to comment tonight as the Ukiah City Council considers items related to the project. Among them – because the project’s Environmental Impact Report found that it will have “significant and unavoidable impacts,” the council must adopt a Statement of Overriding Considerations declaring that the store’s positive benefits, like jobs and revenues, will outweigh its negatives, like traffic and air quality. If items are approved by the council tonight, then the store’s Site Development Permit will go before the Ukiah Planning Commission next month.
