NO WAL-MART at BARBER PROPERTY LOCATION in BROOMFI

I, the undersigned, and my family strongly urge the members of the Broomfield City Council, acting as BURA, to reject any forthcoming proposals to purchase the Barber property at 4651 W. 120th Ave. by the Wal-Mart Corp. We firmly believe Wal-Mart is NOT A GOOD NEIGHBOR and would have an extremely detrimental effect on our local businesses, property values, traffic patterns, local wages, unemployment numbers, our taxes due to increased public health care costs, the crime rate, the environment, and the general social and economic health and well being of our community. We strongly oppose the use of our sales tax dollars enabling the building of a Wal-Mart, the world\'s richest retailer, in Broomfield. Furthermore, we pledge to NOT SHOP at any future Wal-Mart built in Broomfield. Depending on the survival of existing similar retailers, this may well result in our spending our tax dollars outside of Broomfield.

    Comments: The Broomfield City Council needs to watch the Walmart Documentary to see the very convincing arguments against Walmarts lack of ethics and complete disregard and lack of positive contribution to the communities it joins. We already have a Walmart within 5 min. drive to the east and this new site will be 5 min. to the west of our development. Think of all the wonderful things that space could be used for as a community walking downtown. Broomfield needs another Walmart like a fish needs a bicycle.
