Since Vic's Market closed in March 2015, the neighborhood of South Land Park has indicated specific desired uses for the property in question.
There have been several instances of community outreach to the South Land Park Neighborhood Association and to the District 5 Council office, asking for their involvement to bring in an anchor tenant. Consequently, the office in conjunction with the neighborhood association, decided to hold a meeting on November 18th, 2015, to explain both their capacity and capabilities to do so.
11/19: Code enforcement visited the site early in the morning, and removed the remaining couch on site. Will continue to monitor the property on weekly basis.
11/20-21: CM Schenirer's office has reached out to several Asian grocers, including 99 Ranch Market. Economic departments of those companies acknowledge the availability of the site and will reach out to Chang Family as needed.
11/22: Economic Development is in process of researching Molly Stone's.
12/1: CM Schenirer's office in process of coordinating meeting with all three property managers.
12/8: We've been asked whether the fencing around Vic's counts as a code violation, because it blocks off the sidewalk. We're working on getting answers.
12/10: We've received several comments from neighborhood residents regarding code violations around Vic's. We wanted to clarify:
* The fence around the property does not constituent a code violation. The fence was put up by the property manager to protect the property, and shields from blight during renovation and construction.
* However, the couches and other dumped items are code enforcement items. The City has been in contact with the property management company, who continues to be vigilant about monitoring.
* 2/1: We have updated the Contacts section with the new broker information, and have also been in direct contact with the broker. He is in the process of working with the neighborhood association
* 3/1: We have received notice that there is work being done - we are getting details now.
* 3/11: The 5990 SLP site is currently in the process of being demolished. We will keep you updated on the demolition.
