Lon, As a resident that will be affected by the subject rezoning proposal I want to express my disapproval with the proposal. This proposal is inconsistent with long-range planning for this area and is incompatible with the neighboring community. Furthermore a perfectly suitable and correctly zoned location exists for Wal-Mart just north at the Monument… Continue Reading Wal-Mart would be fine … at Monument Marketplace

Lon, It has recently come to my attention that an opportunity exists to voice my opinion on the matter of Wal-Mart taking residence off Baptist road. Currently, I am the original homeowner of my house in Fox Run which is a development with a section that backs up to Baptist Road.

Dear Lon Matejczyk, Regarding the proposed Baptist Road Wal-Mart, I don’t understand the purpose of zoning if a small group of individuals can make a monumental change to an existing zoning plan that was presumably created with the benefit of the community in mind, without the approval of the general electorate.

Dear Editor, I’d like to echo and expand upon Mr. Matejczyk’s comments in the 25 June issue of the CSBJ about the proposal to place a Wal-Mart Supercenter on Baptist Road.

Even Wayne Williams, the commissioner for… Continue Reading Bottlenecks, tailgaters and congestion – Traffic the main headache

Comments Off

Wal-Mart’s desire to build a supercenter on Baptist Road near the intersection of Interstate 25 has been stirring a good deal of controversy. And no matter what decision the El Paso County Board of Commissioners make in regard to the company’s request to rezone the proposed building site property, somebody’s not going to be happy.… Continue Reading Baptist Road Wal-Mart stinks to high heaven

Re: Campbell’s article in your June 18, 2004 edition. I agree wholeheartedly with Sen. Campbell. On September 11, 2001 the United States was the victim of a terrorist act that resulted in the loss of several thousands lives. It showed us that there are terrorists and regimes that support terrorism who want to harm us… Continue Reading The terrorist threat is still a reality
