Glennbrooke residents expected to flood council chamber with concerns over proposed 24/7 Wal Mart


Although no aspect of the proposed 24-hour Wal Mart slated for construction on the corner of Bruceville Rd. and Whitlock Pkwy. is on tonight's agenda, Elk Grove City Council members can expect to hear loud and clear concerns about the project.

On Sunday, several hundred members of the Del Webb's Glennbrooke neighborhood brain-stormed with the Elk Grove Coalition Advocating Proper Planning (EGCAPP) on how to prevent the behemoth retailer from operating a round-the-clock store in a residential area.

EGCAPP's to the neighbors advise can be summed up in the old adage; the squeaky wheel gets the grease. To that end, several of the residents in attendance at Sunday's meeting said they would make their concerns known during the public comment session of non agenda items.

This portion is of the meeting is usually conducted at the beginning of the council meeting. The council could be in for a long night.

We do hope the city will listen to those of us residents in the neighborhood and reconsider the Walmart project - it would have a tremendous negative impact on our neighborhood. Seems to me the city has misidentified the nature of its residents. No one I know in our neighborhood supports Walmart being built here.
