MADISON, Wis. - The controversial Grandview Commons town center has the green light from the Madison city council.
The city council voted last night to approve the grocery store on Madison's east side.
The space off Cottage Grove Road was approved in March and will feature a 58 thousand square foot Copps Marketplace.
The planned grocery store doesn't sit well with everyone, and it hasn't since Veridian Homes first proposed it. People living in Grandview Commons fought for a smaller store, but several years and amendments later, the Madison Common Council approved the 58,000-square-foot space in March.
Some neighbors said they worry about acoustics, specifically loud noises from the trash compactor and loading docks. But the alder representing the third district where the store will sit said residents shouldn't worry.
