WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) – -

A Kroger store was approved to be built in West Chester Tuesday night.

West Chester's Board of Trustees approved a consent decree in court to rezone property on the southeast corner of Tylersville Road and Ohio 747.

The consent decree was related to a rezoning case West Chester trustees heard back in March 2014.

The proposal was originally met with heated debate from residents concerned about traffic and other issues.

"It's very disappointing that the needs of the community and all of the people are going to be overturned by a corporation," said West Chester resident Debra Lawrence.

Local developer Silverman and Company want to rezone property on the southeast corner of Tylersville and Princeton-Glendale roads to develop “Crossings of Beckett,” a project which includes a Kroger Marketplace, fuel pump station and other development. 

Trustee president Mark Welch said the township spent $300,000 battling the issue, after initially denying the rezoning request. That's when they were brought to court, which led to this decision tonight. 

State law, specifically Ohio Revised Code Section 505.07, allows townships to settle court action to rezone property, previously under Zoning Map Amendment application, through consent decree with mutually agreed upon terms involving both parties.
