I don't actually think the rules for the corner stores are dumb. I find them pretty well formulated. I like living in an area is walking distance to places I want to go, but quietish. The hours of operation restrictions make a lot of sense to me especially. The logic of the buffer makes sense as those people already have significant access to commercial areas. I could see even other protections for neighbors such as allowing additional fencing or other physical barriers to separate the space if requested as a condition of approval. The end result is likely not to be a large number of them, but where they do occur it will be where business owners see a significant demand which means its good for everyone. We are putting these into places where longtime residents already live after all.
