Addison approves Sam's Club redevelopment plan

- A plan to turn the site of a former Sam’s Club in Addison into high-density housing won approval despite protests.

People spoke for and against the plan at a long city council meeting Tuesday night. The vote to approve the plan happened around 12:30 a.m.

The plan calls for three-story townhomes and five-story apartments. Some people say that will add too much traffic to the area.

“It’s too dense. It’s not well planned. It’s not well thought out. As the man said, you don’t have to marry the first person you dance with. It isn’t good enough,” Phyllis DeWitt Ryland said.

After the initial vote, the council came back to approve an economic incentive plan to reimburse the developer for some infrastructure improvements.
