— Developers of the controversial Bridges of Spring Creek want to build a grocery store as part of the project north of 15th Street and Bryant Avenue.

The proposal by Sooner Land Co. LLC would require an amendment to the Bridges of Spring Creek planned unit development and approval of a new preliminary plat.

Both items will be before the Edmond Planning Commission at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at 20 S Littler Ave.

The original Bridges of Spring Creek project was met with strong opposition by neighboring homeowners, and a special election over rezoning the property was called in November 2006.

Nothing has been built on the property in the past six years. A site plan for a new BancFirst building was approved in June to be built on property south of Pelican Bay Aquatic Center.

Lydia Lee, former planning commissioner, has been an opponent of the Bridges of Spring Creek project since it first went before the city council in 2006.

Lee, in an email forwarded to The Oklahoman, is concerned because the design has dramatically changed from the originally proposed upscale retail establishments and restaurants with a Tulsa Utica Square atmosphere to a big box grocery store with a drive-thru to be open 24 hours a day.
