Astoria Co-op, neighbors reach compromise

The Astoria Co-op Grocery plans to build a new store in the Mill Pond neighborhood.

The Astoria Co-op Grocery could break ground on a new store as early as January after reaching a compromise with neighbors.

The City Council was scheduled to hear arguments from both sides earlier this month after three property owners appealed a city board’s approval of the co-op’s plans to expand from downtown to property in the Mill Pond neighborhood.
