Another Session Scheduled On Shadle Center’s Future

Compiled By Business Staff
 

Shadle Park residents, business owners and real estate developers will meet Tuesday for a final debate on fate of the antiquated, peeling Shadle Shopping Center.

The North Side neighborhood mall sparked controversy when developers announced plans to build a mammoth, 12-screen theater complex near the corner of Wellesley and Belt. After hundreds of irate residents rose in protest, Tomlinson Black Group of Cos. reduced the size to an 8-screen theater, or a retail anchor.

City Hearing Examiner Greg Smith will hear testimony but likely will not make a final decision on the renovation plans until mid-August. Residents may examine blue prints of the redesign in City Hall until the Tuesday meeting.

The hearing begins at 6 p.m. on the sixth floor of City Hall, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd.
