New 7-11 in WI

I am really amazed that there is resistance to this proposed 7-11. that area of WI looks like crap. Putting in a new 7-11 will make the area look decent at the very least. It's another business tax payer in my book as well. I am tired of this town trying to keep business out. The 2 other 7-11 stores have not taken the neighborhood down. And the reason why we have no money to pay for our schools is that we vote business out. Times r changing and we need to get with it. I'd rather driVe past a new 7-11 then then abandoned gas station. Maybe it would encourage current building/ store owners to put some effort into their appearance.
Even the area near Farrrells looks dumpy. If someone wants to put the cash in to create an new nice looking building around here call it what u want but I call it neighborhood improvement!

A new 7-11 will not help us "pay for our schools".

Abe - The land will require an improvement to support a 7-11 (both the structure and property. Re-zoning may be required as well.
This will affect the tax assessment on that property in a favorable direction to the WI schools. Read they will pay more school tax.
Unless Good Sam is operating the 7-11, more RE taxes will be collected for our schools.
If WI wants to spend more on education for their children, and or wants to rein in the continual tax increases our community is seeing every year - WI residents need to come to terms with the fact that they need some commercial businesses to offset those tax requirements.
Wake up Abe.
