The Dallas City Council unanimously approved Tom Thumb’s zoning request to construct a new store at Inwood Road and University Boulevard. Associates with Masterplan contacted each property owner within the zoning notification area.
Masterplan also coordinated neighborhood outreach efforts to explain the need for the new store. Overall, 85 of the 164 zoning ballots were returned in favor of the new store (only 28 in opposition).
Over 900 letters of support were received from property owners within one mile of the new store location. Masterplan coordinated efforts to arrange over 20 neighbors to testify in support of the zoning request. Several members of the Dallas City Council acknowledged this overwhelming neighborhood support as a critical aspect in approving this request.
Tom Thumb will construct a new one story store at this location. This will allow them to provide an additional 2,000 items for its customers. The new store will offer a Brick Hearth Oven, Natural/Organic Product Offerings, Expanded Beer and Wine Selections, Cheese World, Olive Bar, Sushi, and a Starbucks with Wi Fi.
The store’s design and architectural features will be unlike other Tom Thumb grocery stores.
