Wholesale giant to make changes in plans for Martin County



Wholesale giant needs to make changes in plans in Martin County!

Whether you are looking to make South Florida your permanent home, or are planning a seasonal residency, you will find that we Floridians are very involved with the development of new industry and business coming to our area on the Treasure Coast!

Back in October of 2015, we reported here on this blog about Costco® coming to Palm City, Florida in Martin County.

In a recent news report on WPTV®, Alyssa Hyman, Martin County staff met January 21, 2016 to talk about some issues and require Costco® to make some changes to their application.

According to the report, “Costco® must re-submit part of its application that includes re-doing the traffic study for Martin Highway.

Costco® must also amend its building design to adhere to county rules and re-do its storm water runoff plan.”

As part of Costco®’s 5-year plan published in 2013, “Costco® Wholesale Corp. it expects to open approximately 150 new warehouses over the next five years, including the 28 it projects opening this year,” as reported in Supermarket News®.

Back in 2014, Costco® submitted preliminary plans to build a 153K ft. club between Florida’s Turnpike and Southwest High Meadows Avenue. It was reported that the official site plan has been submitted to the Martin County’s Growth Management Department.

According to their website, “What is Costco®?

We are a membership warehouse club, dedicated to bringing our members the best possible prices on quality, brand-name merchandise. With hundreds of locations worldwide, Costco® provides a wide selection of merchandise, plus the convenience of specialty departments and exclusive member services, all designed to make your shopping experience a pleasurable one.

Also according to their website, Costco® states, “Our operating philosophy has remained simple: Keep costs down and pass the savings on to our members. Our large membership base and tremendous buying power, combined with our never-ending quest for efficiency, result in the lowest possible prices for our members. Since resuming the Costco® name in 1997, the company has grown worldwide. During the past fiscal year (ended August 30, 2015), total sales were $113.67 billion. For additional information, request a Costco Story and/or a My Costco Services guide when you visit any Costco® membership counter.”

    Most of Palm City doesn’t want them in our small town. We are trying so hard to get our message out. We are a huge group not a minority. We are hoping to fight this hard and win big for our families sakes. This is not ok with the homeowners!
