Moscow Mulls Law Change For WalMart

Moscow city leaders are considering reversing a zoning ordinance created in 2005 to halt the expansion of Walmart into a super center. The new motive? Keep Walmart in town. As it stands, no building 65,000 square feet or larger may expand more than 10 percent of its current size or more than 10,000 square feet. The Planning and Zoning Commission will hold its second hearing Wednesday to consider removing the square-foot expansion restriction and allow 65,000 square foot buildings to expand within 30 percent of their size/Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.

Question: Would you be fighting to save WalMart, if you sat on the Moscow City Council or P&Z commission?
