The Upper Arlington Board of Zoning and Planning (BZAP) final hearing date for the Kingsdale preliminary development plan has been tentatively rescheduled for Monday, March 2, following the BZAP Work Session beginning at 7 p.m.

The meeting will take place at the Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road.

The formal hearing of the preliminary development plan began at a Feb. 2 BZAP meeting, when Continental representatives asked for a postponement on BZAP's final ruling so that the developer could further refine plans for the proposed Giant Eagle store.

At the March 2 hearing, public testimony will be taken only relative to the new information being provided by Continental, since the public hearing component for the bulk of the plan already occurred Feb. 2.

Continental Real Estate Companies and local developer Mark Catalano announced their plans to purchase the Kingsdale Shopping Center in October 2008. On Dec. 29, the preliminary development plan for the site was filed with the city's Development Department, beginning the public review process.

This plan was informally reviewed by BZAP on Jan. 5.

Updates on the issue are available on the city's Web site, www.ua-ohio.net. Questions may be directed to the city manager's office, 583-5040.
