Councillor Dean Murdock confirms that Target will move into the shopping centre. Murdock is pushing for better pedestrian access in the parking lot,
"Do some pedestrian improvements so that people can find their way through that parking lot which is currently, basically a wasteland to pedestrians. Once you get out of your car, it's a real challenge to try to get to the store."

Council's position seemed pretty clear. Either a coffee shop is guaranteed for the corner of Tyndall and San Juan avenues, or the property would not get rezoned.
After councillors expressed extreme discontent that Matt Pye wouldn't commit in writing to a coffee shop, he ultimately agreed to a one-year covenant requiring one.
