Temporary restrictions to be placed on big box stores on Bayshore Boulevard

Big box outlets that hope to follow Lowe’s into the Bayshore Boulevard corridor might have to wait for a year or more.

The Board of Supervisors is poised to approve interim zoning rules that would force large retail stores or chain stores to secure a conditional use permit before opening a location along the corridor.

A Lowe’s store is under construction at 491 Bayshore Boulevard.

The hardware store is expected to attract customers and businesses to the industrial area, which contains multiple empty lots and vacant store fronts, when it opens later this year.

City officials are leading a community consultation process in a bid to determine what types of businesses should be attracted to open up in the area.

The interim zoning rules, which were discussed Monday by the Board of Supervisors’ Land Use and Economic Development Committee, will apply until a permanent plan for the area is finalized.
