Opponents of a proposed Valvoline oil-change facility at McClintock Drive and Warner Road won another rousing battle on Nov. 7 when the Tempe City Council unanimously denied an appeal by the property owner of an earlier slap-down by the city’s Development Review Commission.
On Sept. 24 the Use Permit and Development Plan Review were denied unanimously by the commission after an outpouring of opposition from neighbors.
Diversified Partners proposes the oil-change shop on the dirt lot at Alta Mira Plaza, on the southeastern corner of the intersection, formerly the longtime home of Shell service station. The new development would consist of a single-story building with three drive-through service bays.
