Trader Joe's Minneapolis plans face opposition

| No Comments

A Trader Joe's store proposed for the Lyn-Lake area of south Minneapolis is encountering resistance, the Star Tribune reported.

Opposition to the building is lead by City Council Member Meg Tuthill, who says that her primary issue with the project has to do with current zoning laws, the Star Tribune reported.

Current zoning laws require stores selling liquor to be a certain distance apart from one another, and a liquor-selling Trader Joe's in the proposed spot would violate current laws, CBS Minnesota reported.

Tuthill told the Star Tribune that changing zoning for one business is bad policy.
