I Still Think Walmart is Backwards

Allowing a Walmart to be built in downtown Sarasota is the exact opposite of the economic viability we are looking for. Aside from the myriad of social justice and environmental infringements consistently imposed by the corporation itself, its footprint in the center of an area striving for entrepreneurialism, creativity, and economic and environmental sustainability would leave an indelible impression that would be deterrent to our intended goals as a community. The proposed parcel of land is not zoned for a structure of this magnitude for a very good reason, and we would be wise to heed the direction set by those that have come before us in order to keep Sarasota on a progressive path of localized development.
