Whoa! The store on Morse Rd. is right across the street from Easton. I don't see where this has anything to do with race. The store on Morse Rd is laid out wrong, from the parking lot in. That includes everything else in that strip. There's no good way in, no good way out and not like it's nothing new, but Morse Rd. is not safe after dark from High St. all the way to Wexner Land. Call it what you want, it's not about skin color, it's about the element that's allowed to roam the streets, the gangs and the thugs.
Right.

There is nothing wrong with that store or the way it's laid out. In fact, for a big box center it is actually fairly decent. In no way, shape or form has Walmart been detrimental to the area. If anything, it has only been detrimental to the junky part of Morse Rd. to the east. You people just don't like shopping with people of color.

I don't want to live near them, but I don't mind shopping in the same store.
No no no

I suggest that all those opposed can not be employed there, shop there, or even drive on the parking lot. How about that ?

Shouldn't be a problem. People who don't want it there are unlikely to shop or be employed there in the first place, genius.

This isn't about anti-development. A community has the right to speak for or against certain retail projects. I'm not against WalMart per se as a company, I just don't feel it fits the area. Not to mention the traffic congestion it will contribute to in an already overly traffic congested intersection. What does WalMart bring that is not already available in Westerville right now?
The community has a right to speak for or against thats true but The developer has a right to earn a profit from his retail space.Really all he had to do was rent it as is and he would not have even had to go to city council
