I am outraged at the changes that the county calls "necessary" to accommodate a Walmart that no one in the area wants to have move into our small town.
How were these owners affected by these changes not consulted directly on factors that would have a dramatic effect on their businesses?
I drive past this area four-six times a day and there is no way that I would try to make a U-turn or meander through a Walmart parking lot to get to these businesses.
I would just as well stay away from all the traffic and congestion that a Walmart brings.
The county managers need to be held responsible for the changes they approved against public disapproval that are affecting these businesses.
I only wish to see more coverage of the effects, both real and anticipated, on these small businesses.
Thank you for your coverage.
