Meijer is now allowed to build its store on the vacant land at Tenny Avenue and East Sunset Drive.
The Waukesha Common Council approved the store on a re-vote Tuesday night 10-4, according to Mayor Jeff Scrima. The rezoning change required at two-thirds vote, and with several absences at the Aug. 8 council meeting, the rezoning for the store was denied. However, Alderman Andy Reiland voted against approving the land use amendment so he would be allowed to bring the plans back to the Common Council for a second vote.
Patch will have more information about the vote on Wednesday.
The proposed development is nearly 193,000 square feet with a 24-hour operation. The family-owned supercenter has 200 stores in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Kentucky. The business is entering the southeastern Wisconsin market and have experienced similar fights in Sussex and Oak Creek during public hearings.
The store is planned for a 2015 opening date.
