Stop the Wal-Mart SuperCenter in Glen Carbon.

We, the undersigned residents of Glen Carbon, Illinois, oppose the expansion of Wal-Mart at the Cottonwood Mall. We believe: The expansion is NOT consistent with the development goals of Glen Carbon. An acceptable traffic study has NOT been completed. A plan for dealing with increased traffic has NOT been developed. Any variance from our Village ordinances are NOT appropriate for this expansion. The (alleged) rights of business should NOT outweigh the rights of the citizens of Glen Carbon. Signatures are not limited to one member per household. Each adult member of a household may sign separately. Your signature and address will be kept confidential and released only when the petition is submitted to the Village of Glen Carbon. Providing your email address indicates you would like to receive email updates and action alerts on this issue. Your email address will be kept private and not distrubuted in any way to a third party.

Sponsor

The GlenEd Citizens for Fair Growth organization is dedicated to responsible growth in our community. We expect our officials to consider what is best for the entire community when making decisions, not just the bottom line. Furthermore, many businesses in our area have been given TIF monies and therefore do not contribute to the betterment of Glen Carbon or Edwardsville while simulataneously draining our limited public resources. You and I have the power of the people. We CAN say NO to Wal-Mart. We WILL show them the Village of Glen Carbon has MORE POWER than a giant corporation with no concern for our community.

    Comments: We are already over served by big box stores and there would be no meaningful gain in sales tax revenue since there is not enough population to increase sales. Therefore, it would only be a redistribution of taxes. VOTE NO!!!!!!!
