Arts and crafts retailer Michaels Stores Inc. plans to expand its Westside distribution center by 200,000 square feet, City Council learned Tuesday night.

In speaking about a proposed bill regarding a road issue affecting access, a property representative at the podium mentioned the expansion.

That prompted district City Council member Doyle Carter to invite him into the Green Room, just off Council chambers, after his comments.

The speaker, lawyer Robert Telles, represents Mike Jacksonville FL LLC, the entity that owns the property. He said after the Green Room meeting that his group will work with the City on the access issue.

“They’re excited about the prospect of Michaels expanding,” said Telles with the Telles, Walker & Kochenderfer law firm in Walnut Creek, Calif., which handles corporate, mergers and acquisitions, finance, real estate, municipal bond, entertainment, arts and sports law.

Mark Howerton, a Michaels manager, said the existing 500,000-square-foot facility employs about 200 people. He could not comment about additional jobs and referred questions to the Michaels corporate offices.
