The contruction is

"If X happens, Y will happen".

"If" is to impart sense of uncertainity. The same is "When" , that is we donnot know the exact time
of occurance of the event. The constuct remains ....

"When X happens, Y will happen".

But if you say,
"When X will happen, Y will happen" , you definitely loose the sense of uncertainity - isn't it ?

I chose B.

"The city will lose more than one million dollars in much-needed revenue when the shopping center on Beacon Drive..."

That is a prediction into the future, so this means there has to be a basis for the claim. The original sentence adds "...will close sometime in the next year and move to a different county." The extra "will" is excessive and makes the sentence confusing.

B is more concise and yet addresses the basis for the future prediction.

The simple present and consistency in tense are needed here. So, only B is the best answer choice :D.
