Walmart Applies for Land Disturbance Permit at Suburban Plaza

The permit will serve as plans for preliminary work to be done on the site, including demolition and erosion control.

It's just a quick post on the Medlock Area Neighborhood Association blog, so I'll direct you there for the information.

Walmart has officially begun preliminary work in the construction of a new "super" store in Suburban Walmart, according to the blog.

You may have heard that on Friday Wal-Mart applied for a land disturbance permit at Suburban Plaza. The engineering staff is reviewing the applicant’s engineering drawings and will provide comments back to the applicant on June 19th. After this initial review and comment meeting, the applicant will have an opportunity to revise their plans and resubmit them for further review and approval.

So, as some residents around the North Decatur/Medlock community fight to stop the development, Walmart and Selig Enterprises, which owns Suburban Plaza, are moving forward.

I think Walmart should build right next door to Jeff Raider, he thinks so highly of them and all.

A major news story broke about three weeks ago about Walmart bribing corrupt Mexican officals. There is no telling how much Rader and Ellis pocketed over the Suburban Plaza Walmart deal...

Tom...Why would Walmart need to bribe anyone in regard to this particular development? The property was already zoned for their use. Selig was the applicant on the parking variance and neither Rader nor Ellis have any involvement in that process. The bribery in Mexico was related to issuance of building permits and were used to expedite that process. Again, no elected official in DeKalb County dictates that procedure. Let's stop with the conspiracy theories.
