The City Council voted 5-0 in favor of Wal-Mart, despite the opposition by more than 300 vehement persons who opposed the project. Despite the numerous residents who spoke to the issue. Despite the fact that Wal-Mart pushed back on a City request to reduce operating hours to below 24 hours a day. Despite the protestations of other local representative. Despite the fact that, according to the General Plan, a retail center was not the intended land use.

Despite the fundamental argument presented by SOC: that this is bad development.

Save Our Community had a meeting Thursday night, and there's energy in the group to continue the fight. We seek legal and political remedy.
