representatives from the affected neighborhoods at the Wednesday, 2/21
meeting at Armbrust & Brown. It addresses a number of the issues we
, but did not get to the one that underlies all of the issues
– the size of the supercenter. It’s still a 200,000 plus square foot
retail store. The above photo is what the 200,000 plus square foot
Wal-Mart looks like on 620.
