Well, Warner Center neighbors still hate that butt-to-the-street Costco, reports the LA Daily News. The Westfield Village at Topanga project, which also includes a 275 room hotel, a grocery store, a movie theater, a community building, 15 acres of open space, and tons of retail and offices, got its first public hearing last night. The vibe was pretty happy, according to the Daily News, except for when talk turned to the long-hated Costco and adjacent gas station, which will run mostly along Victory Boulevard at Owensmouth Ave. One Canoga Park resident presented a petition against the store with 300 signatures and the Woodland Hills Warner Center Neighborhood Council said the Costco and gas station have got to move. But Westfield officials have previously said the Costco will be "one of the nicest-looking Costcos anybody has ever seen," and at least one resident does agree. Last night, she told the meeting "We're going to have the best damn Costco in the country."
