Stop Wal-Mart super center (# 4225) in Lower Heidelberg Township

I am strongly opposed to the construction of a Wal-Mart super center in Lower Heidelberg Township. Whereas: 1. A 184,000 square foot Wal-Mart store has been proposed to the township of Lower Heidelberg along Route 422 at the north corner of Penn Avenue (Rt 422) & Krick Lane and; 2. This store will likely have detrimental effects on the surrounding community, including increased traffic, harm to surrounding businesses, and a negative impact on neighborhood integrity, and; 3. As citizens of the local communities of Lower Heidelberg, South Heidelberg, Sinking Spring, Wernersville, Robesonia, and beyond, we are concerned about the long-term implications of this retail development on the economic and social health of our neighborhoods, We request that the township of Lower Heidelberg act to prevent the construction of this Wal-Mart store in Lower Heidelberg.

Where are the older or sicker people supposed to shop when all the smaller food stores and pharmacies are gone When traffic is at a standstill, car pollution is still being emitted and for a longer period of time. This will affect the air quality. When traffic goes onto sideroads to try to escape the traffic on route 422, the township roads will deteriorate at a much greater rate at the local taxpayers' expense.
