COUNCIL ACTION
AGENDA ITEM:
Discussion of potential regulations for small discount variety stores
BACKGROUND:
Various municipalities in Texas and in other states have started regulating small discount variety stores for the purpose of providing healthier and affordable food options to economically depressed areas. The attached presentation provides a summary of regulations in multiple cities. 
FINDINGS:
With the goal of providing healthier and affordable food options to economically depressed areas, regulations have centered on two main restrictions:
  1. Requiring distance separations for small box or small discount variety stores to prevent over concentration.
  2. Requiring small box or discount variety stores to have a designated area for produce.
FINANCIAL IMPACT:
There is no financial impact from this work session agenda item. 
RECOMMENDATION:
This item is being presented for presentation and discussion purposes only at the request of Mayor Pro Tem Byrd. No action will be taken on this item during the Work Session; however, it may come back at a future City Council Meeting for consideration.
