Sylvania City Council has unanimously approved a zoning change for a proposed CVS pharmacy at Sylvania Avenue and King Road.

Council authorized the change Feb. 3 from heavy industrial to general business for the property at 7510 Sylvania Ave.

Approval was delayed until Zaremba Group of Cleveland assured city officials the site would be built with traffic flow in mind. An affidavit pledged that if property along King north of the proposed drugstore were developed commercially, CVS will negotiate a pact with the landowner to build an internal cross-access drive and common driveway.

Council and the planning commission had asked CVS to work out a similar pact with The Andersons Market, whose 7638 Sylvania Ave. store borders the drugstore site to the west. But Kevin Aller, city service director, said the market property’s owners did not reach a pact with CVS.
