  1. Is the Post or Mayor Hancock being paid off to support the Walmart construction/related development on Colorado Blvd. How could any Denver citizen be a supporter of this?

  2. I understand the difficulty in a major redevelopment as this. When the economy and capital markets impact the local market and an overall plan must be redesigned, it is difficult. I am as interested in thoughtful re-development, however, having Walmart become the “gateway” to several establised residential neighborhoods is simply wrong. A more compatable plan will evolve in time, that is sensitive to the adjacent uses. Not every unused large parcel or land needs to become a Walmart.
