Survey Says? RG4N Polls on Wal-Mart

Responsible Growth covers Northcross this weekend

Today Responsible Growth for Northcross announced they will undertake a massive multineighborhood survey to get a gauge of public opinion in the ongoing Wal-Mart/Northcross debacle. RG4N members will be canvassing door-to-door, while several Wal-Mart-weary businesses will additionally have the survey over the weekend. Also, the survey can be taken online at Says RG4N President Hope Morrison in a press release, "By asking the questions Lincoln Property Company should be asking, we'll quantify the neighborhood opposition to the redevelopment plans and the giant Wal-Mart. Plus, we'll be equipped to create a better vision for Northcross. Ultimately, we want to benefit the surrounding neighborhoods and help Lincoln Property Company rethink their plans and build a more successful and admired development."

This burst of civic action occurs the weekend of the Allandale Neighborhood Association's meeting. Rumors of an interassociation skirmish over whether to sign off in formal opposition to Wal-Mart (and support a possible lawsuit) will likely surface in the Saturday meeting.
