MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon Court of Appeals has affirmed a decision to allow Costco Wholesale to build a store in Central Point.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2kpF1GH ) the court issued the ruling without an opinion this week, apparently ending a two-year legal struggle that began after a planning commission approved a permit for the construction of a 162,000-square-foot warehouse and gas station.

Central Point Community Development Director Tom Humphrey says Costco could start construction in a matter of weeks.

Land-use planner Calvin Martin of Jacksonville was one of three men to contest the planning commission’s decision. He maintains the site for the proposed store is inappropriate and “technically illegal.”
