UPLAND - The city Planning Commission on Wednesday night approved a correction to a proposal to build a 7-Eleven at the southeast corner of Campus Avenue and Foothill Boulevard.

The correction is related to a traffic analysis conducted for the convenience store project and will not change it, but the matter needed to be addressed before an appeal of the project is heard by the City Council on Dec. 10.

7-Eleven is requesting approval to demolish an automotive repair building and build a 2,940 square-foot store at 720 E. Foothill Blvd.

Upland-based attorney Cory Briggs filed an appeal on behalf of nearby business owner Sheela Matthew challenging the project's environmental determination, variance findings, compliance with noticing requirements and the city's appeal process.

The Planning Commission approved the conditional use permit in June.

A second appeal was filed in July.

The appeal was originally supposed to be heard by the council in August but it was postponed three times.

The council is expected to consider the appeal on Dec. 10.

Matthew addressed the commission at its meeting Wednesday night.

"There are several established businesses less than a mile of that one," she said. "I believe we don't need one more convenience store at the corner."
