The price of everything is going up. I personally know many families that make regular trips out of the area to places like Wal-mart in Paso and Costco in SLO. It is more cost evective in raising families to do so even with the gas prices. The problem is that Atascadero is the only one missing out on the tax revenues. When will Atascadero join the new age and get on the boat. We are in financial trouble. We keep trying to revitalize the down town only to watch businesses set up and shut down. We need money in our town and Wal-mart is a no brainer.

just think of all the weeds that will be cut down,weeds have rights too, even if they are dead,the city dont need 2.000.000 ayear from taxes paid by walmart.the city is rich.4.50 a gallon for gas to go to paso robles is nothing.i say let paso have the taxes,and we get to keep the weeds.

Ive heard all the hype about what walmart will bring to the community and the councils grab for $$$$. What about the increased traffic what about the local house market? what about the local infrastructure upgrades... ongoing maintenance of the roads what about...... hey will all the external shoppers stop and buy from local stores...dah dont think so they just spent all their money at Walmart!!!!
