No way no how should Walmart be allowed to be build on such a small lot. They (walmart proponents) will argue low prices, greater competition and increased tax revenue. But what they don't want to be discussed is the small town charm that will surely become extinct as it has become in other towns that have over-developed in search of additional tax revenue by enabling these mega-store vultures to roll in and destroy the small mom and pop shops.
And if you don't think traffic will become an issue- take a look at Rt 4 in Paramus, NJ on a Saturday afternoon, that is what our future will look like.
And for the person that commented Walmart will pick up and move to Yorktown, I say let them have them. I would much rather see a Target move into the Cortlandt Town Center anyway. The store has a better selection, similiar prices, will be a compliment to the stores already there and will mostly likely attract much better behaving, dressing and not to mention better looking patrons- have you seen www.peopleofwalmart.com lately? It's a sad reality and scary. View Comment
