The property adjoins 66.1 acres which were earlier re- zoned R-l to B-2 to make way for a 1.1 million square foot shopping center planned by rl a h n Newman Development lorp. of Overland Park, Kan. The center, dubbed Westdale Mall, will have four large de- partment stores, about 100 smaller shops and parking for automobiles. Original Plans Plans originally called for :hree department stores. The decision to expand to four stores, with an additional iquare feet of floor space: jrompted the request for rezon- ing of the smaller parcel and also caused some of the com- mission members to become concerned. "I'm wondering if the tail might start wagging the dog said Gerald Ovel, com- mission chairman. "If we get too big on the out- skirts, what is it going to' do to our downtown area? "I'm not opposed to a center ;here, but I wonder about size." John Joyce, project manager 'or Hahn-Newman, said the ex- pansion is designed to satisfy ;he needs of the department stores. He said his company is negotiating with four stores, iut has taken no binding action with them. No Names He declined to name the stores. Joyce said only three stores will, initially be located in the center, with the fourth to be added in 1978. All the commissioners ap- jeared to be concerned with the welfare of the downtown area, )ut disagreed on whether the commission should consider the subject before actirig on the zon- ng request particularly since he area has already been desig- nated for commercial use in the Brooks. In other business, the com- mission: Approved a request by the Cedar Valley Bible church to rezone property on Cottage Grove avenue SE, west of Indian Hill road, from R-l to R-T to provide additional parking. Approved a request by Life Investors Development Co. to rezone property on Sixty-sixth avenue SW, west of the railroad tracks, from M-l to M-2.
