Revised plans to bring a Wal-Mart Supercenter to Lodi could be back in front of city leaders by this summer, despite growing opposition in the region to such retail giants.

Lodi Planning Manager Peter Pirnejad said Monday that reworked sections of Wal-Mart's environmental impact report - including the project's effect on the local economy, traffic, air quality and agriculture - could be ready for review by the Lodi City Council in about three months.

    It is sad to see the contempt that some of you have for your fellow citizens. You call them "food stamp" collectors, unworthy and criminal element.It's a bit weird that you feel such class animocity. What do you think Bay Area people think of you? Is it so hard to accept that perhaps WM is a appropriate place to shop for those with fixed incomes?

    kma: Unfortunately, the media has done a great job of putting misleading labels out there. Universal Care (which as proposed is not the same plan as other countries)has been forever misconstrued as socialized medicine just like stem cell research has been forever mistakenly linked to purposely killing fetuses and human cloning.

    With your financial genius I'd assume you are on the Lodi city council?

    T&C, I'm not going to let this go. I want to know which Council members are lining their pockets because of the Walmart Supercenter.

    Home Depot doesn't utilize any old buildings. Their buildings are all new and already planned and engineered for the area they are locating in. That Walmart store isn't high enough to be used for high-piled storage like Home Depot uses. Just another smokescreen to get Wally moved across the street and start their own grocery store. That is, if they can come up with an EIR that's acceptable.

    There is an outstanding editorial in this morning's Stockton Record regarding Walmart Supercenters. Given the fact that T&C has rated the Record as the most outstanding newspaper in the area and the only one worth reading gives this editorial even that much more credibility.

    Leonard: I agree with your post to Metric. That's if you can find a FULL time employee there. At the WM here, the only full-timers are managers. All the associates are part time.

    The comment made in the article that is "trendy" to go against WalMart sums up the hollowness of the pursuit. MalMarts are neither bad or good for any community. They are simply part of weaving a fabric where choice is paramount. On the other hand the local grocers with their incredible lack of choice and punishing prices have every reason to maintain their monopoly.

    The super centers are great and once it is here, event the Wal Mart haters will shop there. The difference in prices, especially the groceries, is dramatic. The small stores in town that actually have something to offer will do just fine.
