At last night’s ANA meeting, the Executive Committee voted unanimously to file a lawsuit against the City for approving the Northcross site plan that includes a Wal-Mart Supercenter. As ANA has stated all along, we are concerned the development will create significant traffic problems, negatively impact surrounding businesses, and ultimately change the character of the area.
We, the Allandale Neighborhood Association (ANA), are
working on your behalf and need your help. As you know, Lincoln Property
Company is redeveloping Northcross Mall to include a 192,000 square foot
this magnitude will overburden our roads, negatively impact surrounding
businesses, and ultimately change the character of Allandale.
For decades, Allandale residents have successfully fought to
preserve the quality and character of our neighborhood. We have saved the
neighborhood from serious threats by:
the largest zoning rollback (to SF-2) in
the conversion of
into a 6-lane freeway;
- Stopping a
church expansion that would have destroyed many neighborhood homes;
the extension of
Far West Boulevard
It’s not a done deal. We continue to press on. In the last couple of weeks, while City staff review Lincoln’s second site plan – one that has since been modified to include a smaller Supercenter, members of the ANA’s Northcross Committee have let the City know our concerns have not changed. Northcross is no place for a Supercenter. We don’t have the infrastructure nor the desire for a single retailer of that scale.

Asian tiger—how it’s only been in the U.S. since 1985, but has spread like
wildfire east of the Rockies; how it’s so aggressive that it displaces our
lazier, indigenous mosquitoes; how it’s spreading dengue fever in Latin
