WLVL News: NEXT APPEAL COULD DELAY LOCKPORT SUPER WALMART CONSTRUCTION 9 MONTHS

In the Town of Lockport, residents involved with Smart Growth are appealing the recent State Supreme Court ruling upholding Town approvals of a proposed WalMart Supercenter at the vacated Lockport Mall. Smart Growth attorney Dan Spitzer says he filed a notice of appeal late last week.

The notice essentially puts WalMart and the Town on notice that the group will argue some aspect of Judge Richard Kloch's ruling supporting planning and zoning approvals to put a Supercenter at the mall. Spitzer says the initial appeal notice doesn't have to be specific, and they now have up to nine months to make a specific claim to the Appelate Court. The filing is quote, 'the start of a long process,' according to Spitzer.

I gotta tell you, these NIMBY's are really annoying. I wonder if there's any way for WalMart to sue them for lost profits once the Super WalMart IS built ... as we all know it's going to be.
