    Little Caesars wants to open a store at the northeast corner of Seventh Street and Airway Road, in the vacant lot  between Shoes ‘N Boots and Walgreens. When the property, which is owned by Carlos Lopez, was rezoned in 2007, the city imposed the condition that a 2 foot wall be built along the southerly property line to eliminate any traffic on Airway.
