The National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) has published a new Site Approval Toolkit to share strategies for retailers seeking zoning approvals.

The 32-page NACS Site Approval Toolkit is designed to help convenience retailers—whether a one-store operator or chain looking to grow store count or modernize a site’s operations—better understand the planning process and address community concerns.

The NACS Site Approval Toolkit describes typical participants in the planning process and general “nuts and bolts” that comprise the framework of local planning. Each stage of the process is examined, and broad strategies and ideas are provided to consider in the development of a site approval plan.

“Increasingly, NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) concerns raised in zoning approval hearings have made the zoning approval process increasingly complex and difficult to navigate for retailers looking to remodel existing locations or add new locations. While each approval process is admittedly unique, the Site Approval Toolkit will help retailers navigate the process in a more streamlined manner,” said NACS VP of Strategic Initiatives Jeff Lenard.

The primer is the fifth NACS eFresh initiative that addresses ongoing industry perceptions by providing convenience retailers with tools to evolve their in-store offer and elevate their image in their communities. Other NACS toolkits have included “NACS Public Relations Toolkit,” “How Convenience Stores Work And Their Contributions To Communities” and “Building The Business Case For Produce Sales At Convenience Stores.”
