Plans for a Hy-Vee grocery store in Gretna are underway.
Two public hearings were held on topics related to the matter at the Dec. 21 meeting of the Gretna City Council.
The first prompted approval of a revised preliminary plat, final plat and rezone from mixed-use commercial, general commercial, R-2 medium density residential and transitional agriculture to mixed-use commercial, general commercial and R-2 medium density residential. This essentially allowed for adjustment of the lot size on Lot 358, which is owned by Hy-Vee. The property is just over 10 acres.
A second public hearing was held on the conditional use permit for the Hy-Vee grocery store. Nobody spoke on either topic and the council unanimously approved the conditional use permit to operate a Hy-Vee grocery store, which is classified as a large box retail, in the mixed-use commercial zone, generally located north of Highway 370 and east of 192nd Street.
The grocery store is expected to include a nail salon, pharmacy, alcohol sales and outdoor cooking and dining, among other things.
Hy-Vee will come back to the council for a building permit at an upcoming meeting.
A Hy-Vee spokesman at the meeting said the goal is to open the store in the fall of 2022.
Also at its Dec. 21 meeting, the council:
Held a public hearing and ultimately approved a conditional use permit for an automated tunnel car wash with associated parking and infrastructure for Lot 4 Wicks Southpointe, generally located west of Interstate 80 and south of Highway 370.
Held a public hearing and ultimately approved a rezone from R-3 high density residential to R-4 highest density residential for the Highland Pointe subdivision, generally located north of Lincoln Road and west of Highway 6/31. There are no changes to the final plat, but this zoning allows for smaller side yard setbacks, which will allow the builder to implement three-car garages on some lots.
Held a public hearing and ultimately approved a final plat for a subdivision to be known as Cheyenne Ridge, generally located near South 168th Street and south of Cornhusker Road. The project was previously under Sarpy County’s zoning jurisdiction prior to the recent annexation. The 64.6 acre project will include 52 residential lots and one commercial lot.
Held a public hearing and ultimately approved a preliminary plat and rezone from transitional agriculture and mixed-use commercial to R-4 highest density residential and mixed-use commercial for a subdivision to be known as Kayda Corner 2. The development, nearly 90.1 acres, will be a mix of residential and commercial property.
