What You Can Do

For Starters, Start by contacting your City Council Member, and the two At-Large members (Ortega and Kneich). Then contact Mayor Hancock.

KEY TALKING POINT: Walmart, Fuqua Development and their local hired operative, Marcus Pachner of The Pachner Company, should not receive ANY PUBLIC SUBSIDIES to accomplish their task if imposing a hugely unpopular Walmart at the 9th & Colorado redevelopment. This includes a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district designation, which must receive City Council approval. Ask the council members to commit to a no vote for any TIF request from Walmart/Fuqua/Pachner.

  1. There should be neighborhood groups and contacts listed on “who to contact to Stop Walmart”. Many of my neighbors including my self want to be involved, but there seems to be no solid group managing a fight against the mayor and Fuqua. I went to demonstration at 8th and Colorado last week and we held signs and talked to people during rush hour. Many people stopped to ask where to get signs, how to get involved, etc. This should be a regular occourence. There were list to sign and petitions, I signed them all but have heard nothing. I spoke to Zoe, Mary and Louis and let them know myself, my husband and neighbors want to be involved. It feels like time is running out, especially after the article in the Glendale Chronicle. We are not hitting hard enough to make a difference on this issue.

  2. A Wal-Mart is the worst use of this space i can think of for our neighborhood. Go look around at many other Wal-Mart locations and you’ll be hard-pressed to find anymore small businesses left in the neighborhood. Wal-Mart comes in, asks for & gets millions from us to fund their development and on return, kills local small businesses, offers wages their employees cannot live on and practically non-existant health bebefits. Additionally, The traffic on Colorado Blvd is already congested, which a Wal-Mart would greatly increase. Mayor Hancock should be ashamed for supporting this “Wal-Mart takeover” !
