Planners deny distribution warehouse 275 feet from kindergarten

What's next for the Prologis property on Tennessee Street

REDLANDS, Calif. โ€“ Following an extensive review process that began in April, the Redlands Planning Commission officially rejected a proposed distribution warehouse west of Downtown Redlands and just a few hundred feet from local schools.

The Commission passed Resolution 1632 on Tuesday, May 28, to deny Prologis Inc.'s permit requests for a 197,397-square-foot distribution warehouse at 301 Tennessee Street, the site of the former La-Z-Boy factory.

Why it matters: During the public hearing on April 23, the Commission received more than 50 public comments in opposition to the distribution warehouse. Commissioners and the public who opposed the development cited concerns over worsening air quality, proximity to schools, increasing traffic, and a mismatch in the neighborhood aesthetic.
