This will settled in court long before it gets voted on and I'm fairly sure Hadler will win. Application of existing codes are not legislative action. Nothing new was created here, only that redevelopment of an existing shopping center met current codes.

I am ashamed to live in such a community of vocal minority snobs who would go to such lengths to preserve a non-income-producing vacant eyesore. What happens when the sane people get the chance to vote yes to finally get it built - will these haters blow the roof off the place like their ancestors did to the old Blue Goose Saloon?! I can't wait to vote on this one. If it is stopped at the ballot, that will be my last straw and I will vow to leave Westerville. Dublin has a nice Walmart and there is no reason why we shouldn't have a mini one if that's who wants to build in a location that has been a tough sell to develop because it's halfway between Easton and Polaris.

NO MORE Walmarts... I hope Walmart is not allowed to build another store. We all complain these days there less jobs and that our communities appear all the same - manufactured off of Uncle Henry's Line. We complaine that we feel that we are but a number in 'USA Incorporated.' And why? We dream of low prices and big sales, wanting a 'Blue Light' at every store's front door. And what do we buy but cheap imitations that last a year or two if your lucky. Here is the solution... Instead of a Walmart, let the city or county set aside the property for a flea market. Local Government charges X amount per booth, making them happy. And For The People - You now have a place to sell or trade all the junk you have bought on a whim at other Walmarts, such as the Crockpot that was great for about six months. Now excuse me. I have to head to Walmal this morning before it is too late. IT IS the only store left here.(the first year I lived in this area, there were several locally ran stores.
