Updated Monday, 5 p.m.: Judge Phylllis Brown didn’t grant the temporary injunction. Thus, builders may move forward with the construction of a Sam’s Club superstore in Dallas’ East Village neighborhood.
DALLAS, TX (CBS 11 NEWS) – No decision was made on Friday following a hearing to determine the future of a Sam’s Club superstore development in Dallas’ East Village neighborhood. 162nd Civil District Court Judge Phylllis Brown heard testimony from the neighbors who oppose the plan. The plaintiff’s rested their case, and the hearing adjourned for the day shortly after on Friday.
On Monday, beginning at 1:30 pm in the same courtroom, lawyers from the Trammel Crow company, which is developing the project will voice their positions and defend their intentions to move forward with the construction of the Sam’s Club.
The neighbors are claiming they were misled by the Dallas City Plan Commission on the intention for the proposed space. They say they were led to believe it would be re-zoned for a mixed use retail and residence development, not a 150,000 square foot big box store.
The neighborhood association taking up the fight has been granted a temporary restraining order, but is hoping for an injunction that would take this case to a full trial.
Judge Brown is expected to make her decision after Monday’s hearing.
