Reading 101

My intent was to convey the following message:

Various communities over several years have been successful in blocking WalMart. But, alas, amide much cheering that "We beat WalMart" there were chagrined to see WalMart simply move outside their jurisdiction a short distance and build not only a WalMart but attract a lot of other "big box, chain retailers" and a whole new well shopped by locals commercial district. Alas, be cautious of what you ask for. Now the downtowns of those successful at blocking WalMart from their city is full of pawn shops, flea markets and just plain vacancy blight.

I am not against development per se but I am certainly against development of this type or anything close to this type in La Barra. Keep the developers in the 'developed" areas and out of the unspoiled areas. Sorry to say it is futile to think they can be stopped altogether.
