I, too, am perplexed by the demand for CVSes and Walgreenses (are those the correct plurals?). But I gotta say, it's not just a Tulsa thing, and it's just as bad or worse elsewhere.

https://www.google.com/maps/search/cvs/@38.9012512,-77.0385774,15z/data=!3m1!4b1


In Washington DC (and NY, Boston, etc.) many of these are very small and are built into the ground floor of large office buildings, apartments, or condos.  They operate like convenience stores for those nearby to get milk, eggs, etc.  They operate on walk-in traffic.  Much different than in Tulsa where we have a cavernous Walgreens or CVS on every block.  They each have large parking lots and drive thrus catering to automobile traffic.  I don't get the demand either but it's there apparently.

All three buildings have been demolished.  I still can't believe the footprint needed to sell drugs and greeting cards.  The parking lot will be too big as will the building.  I hope they at least stick to the site plan that ultimately was approved.  It included many important aspects that will make it much better than regular CVS stores.

Went by the completed CVS at night.  The outdoor lighting WOULD NOT pass a zoning inspection if it were enforced.

Glare and "light trespass" there are exactly the types of nuisances the ordinance was written to curtail.

Wasn’t that one of the stated concerns of the neighbors in the residential area off 14th?

It would be if they did their jobs.  They have been closing out lighting ordinance complaints because they dont like the language of the ordinance.
