MISHAWAKA — The city of Mishawaka's plan commission postponed a vote Tuesday, April 8, on the final site plan for Costco's proposed warehouse store and fueling center because Costco's representative did not show up, the South Bend Tribune reported.

Commission members waited for 10 minutes after their monthly meeting began at 7 p.m., according to commission chairman Murray Winn. He said they were expecting a person from an Illinois architecture firm representing Costco at the meeting. 

The vote was postponed.

Costco filed plans last October for a new store it planned to build on University Drive, east of the SuperTarget shopping center in Mishawaka. The plans call for a 149,505-square-foot warehouse with 756 parking spaces.

The city recommended that the commission approve the plan as long as Costco developers include a landscape plan, stormwater management and grease tap information. The developers were in the process of submitting that information, according to the city.
