Olympic-Wilton Corner Wants to Sell Slurpees

 

On Tuesday, January 24, the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council’s Land Use Committee will hold its monthly meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Wilshire United Methodist Church (4350 Wilshire Blvd.).  The major agenda item will be a presentation and review of an application by the owners of the service station at the NE corner of Olympic and Wilton, who would like to turn the property into a 24-hour  7-Eleven.  They are also applying for a beer and wine license for the store.

This issue was first brought to the Land Use Committee last spring, when the owners were first starting to explore the idea of the business conversion. At that time, dozens of neighbors from the Country Club Heights, Country Club Park and Wilshire Park neighborhoods spoke out against the idea, and presented petitions from dozens more neighbors who opposed the project.  At that time, however, no applications had yet been filed with the city, so the GWNC could not take any formal action.  The property owners have now filed their applications, so the Land Use Committee may make a formal recommendation for or against the issue at Tuesday’s meeting.  The meeting is open to the public, and there will be opportunity for public comments on this and other area land use issues.
