I AM OPPOSED TO THE CONSTRUCTION OF A WAL-MART SUPERCENTER IN PARADISE.
The proposed Skyway Plaza would substantially change the character of our community, increase traffic, negatively impact downtown businesses and severely impact our local ecosystem. I urge the Town of Paradise to reject the proposed Wal-Mart Supercenter on the Skyway.
I hereby sign and endorse my opposition to the supercenter and authorize Save Our Gateway to use my name in support of their effort to protect the character, economy, and safety of our town.

Roy Spaeth, United States3 years ago Comments: bad for existing small business in town
dalynn dykstra, United States3 years ago Comments: Walmart in Chico is a short, 20 minute drive from Paradise, making it an easy destination for Paradise residents to reach. To develop this area for a shopping center would significantly damage the integrity of Paradise, both historically and ecologically. In addition to diminishing the unique character of the Paradise gateway, the location itself would not be any more convenient for residents to reach than the Chico location. Walmart has a reputation of human rights violations, exploitation of global resources, out-competing small, locally owned businesses, and funneling money out of the communities in which their stores are located. It is imperative that we protect our communities economic resources, the quiet landscape we call home, and the historic value of our town.
Jonathan Schram, United States3 years ago Comments: 6. I am entirely against the addition of a Walmart SuperCenter in Paradise. I fully believe Walmart destroys local businesses by unreasonably undercutting the competition. Walmart is able to undercut their prices by externalizing the costs onto the environment and underpaid employees. The Walmart corporation has become a virus growing strong on our communities. Stop the spread of corporate greed and the destruction of our environment as well as the exploitation of cheap labor!
