Waldo Stays Winning Against Wal-mart!!!
A quick note about the ongoing fight against Wal-mart in Kansas City's last enclave . . .
From The "Waldonians Against Wallmart" FB
Walmart is willing to forgo the 24 hour operation with hours from 6am to midnight instead.
Access from Wornall would be off of 77th St. (not across the existing trail). They are looking at alternatives/options to reduce traffic on Wyandotte, i.e. easement through the shopping center.
And they will participate in the CID.
This movement needs to decide whether we want any kind of commercial operation to go in there or if we want a more community-centered, public use for it. The bottom line is that if you are for a commercial use of any kind, then Wal-mart remains the most viable option to KCPS.
But if the community were to come together and suggest that no commercial use would be welcomed there because the same issues would exist regardless what kind of company went in, then this would be an entirely different issue for the board to consider.
We need to know how many of the supporters here are willing to back a new petition asking the school to reconsider this property at all as a commercial property.
