Wal-Mart Suspends Northcross Plans for 60 Days

Wal-Mart announced today that it is suspending its designs on Northcross Mall for 60 days to talk with surrounding neighborhoods.

While the city already approved Wal-Mart's site plan (under somewhat spurious circumstances), they have yet to approve a remodeling or building permit. Richard Suttle, Wal-Mart's attorney for this project, says the company hopes to address some of the points of neighborhood opposition during the 60-day delay.

This is a good public relations move on Wal-Mart's part, but whether it's any more than that remains to be seen.

According to the Allandale email list, they also filed a permit with the city today. Would you rather believe what they do or what they say?

Well, I can't say I'm all that surprised.
