  • I applaud the three commissioners who upheld our vision as it is set forth in the comprehensive city plan. I was at every meeting and heard wonderful expert testimony about the impact a big box store would have on the modest, quiet, Longtime neighborhoodand I was very impressed.

    The most interesting testimony was giving by the two owners of local shopping centers. the owner of the proposed Walmart and the owner of the Goldtree Plaza. The absentee California Owner of the "Eyesore" old Publix said he has done everything possible to fill his mall and do the right thing for the surrounding community but nothing seems to work. The owner of the Goldtree Plaza had a very different story. He told of fixing his mall up and lowering rents. Now he has full and thriving shopping center so much so that he is sharing the business with his son and can leave his local legacy to the next generation.
