The plans to expand firearm sales in the City of Superior are on hold - at least for the time being.  A proposal that would have allowed more special-use permits for firearm sales was up for action.  However, at their meeting on July 20, the Superior Plan Commission decided that more conversation and dialogue was needed.

At the center of the proposal is whether or not the Superior would create a plan to allow firearm sale sin highway commercial zones. As it stands right now, "firearm sales are permitted in the city's central business district and manufacturing zones".

While discussing the matter, it was determined that proximity issues were a concern.  In other words, moving or allowing firearm sales outside of where they are currently permitted would start to approach on "residential properties, playgrounds, churches, and day care providers".

According to details shared in the article in the Superior Telegram [paywall], the members of the Plan Commission determined that they would "[hold] the matter in committee to give city administration time to explore proximity restrictions and licensing options".

There was also discussion about enforcement of special-use permit stipulations.

The Plan Commission did, however, move to amend the special use permit resolution in regards to the number of days that they would be valid.  The original proposal was for "six days per calendar year"; the Plan Commision moved to change that to "twelve days per calendar year".

Ultimately, the final vote to make a change to city ordinance comes from the Superior City Council.  However, the move on July 20 by the Plan Commision will keep the issue on their agenda - and off the council's - at least for the time being.  The Superior Plan Commision next meets on August 17.
