Here is an update to the survey results reported earlier. I just received another 95 surveys which makes for a total of 289 responses.
The results from January survey on the Northcross redevelopment are consistent with the results from our earlier online survey
conducted back in November. The survey was included in the January Special Issue Newsletter that was delivered to Allandale households. Residents were asked to complete the short survey and mail it back by January 16th.
Out of the 289 responses we received, the majority are
against the Northcross redevelopment that includes a Wal-Mart. Specifically, 72% of the respondents are opposed, 26% are for,
and 1% have no opinion. Click here to see the results. What follows are the additional comments people submitted with the survey.
- a redevelopment plan that enhances our neighborhood would be great but
that’s not wal-mart.
- against no pedestrian access or green space. I am for a dvelopment, against over
150 sq ft. I’m not hot on WalMart.
concerned about high traffic volume and size of proposed store being open
24/7. Don’t approve of the secrecy in approving the contract just like the
large pay increase the city council rammed through without citizen input.
- As it
is presently designed.
is good. Whart are we afraid off? Our world is changing – why can’t
Allandale grow from such a project. Sure would be convenient and less
travel. Business is business/everyone isn’t rich. Oler – on fixed incomes.
- Do not
give money to political committees!

all for developing Northcross, but without a Big Box store.
- I’mnot so much pro Wal-Mart but we definitely need a super store of same sort
in this area. So I support it.

Association and others living in
the Allandale area will be among the first to shop at Wal-Mart when the
doors open for business.
up the good work

needs development help but not Wal-Mart.
give support to RG4N.
Allandale is full of many original homeowners who have helped make
Allandale what it is. Please don’t leave us out of the plan. No it’s not

WalMart brings in more traffic.

Not any of the mom and pop stores have been very stable either. I’m tired
of driving miles for shopping. No more condos wanted in our neighborhood.

not multi-use: lofts, stores, etc.
save gasoline, easy access, cheap medication and groceries.

love to get a No Walmart sign.
shop more often if a store was closer.
online survey which does not support Walmart leaves out some seniors who
don’t have computer.
