I'm about to close (next week) on my first home near 8th and Missouri NW-- just a few blocks from the Georgia Ave site. If only I knew before offering over $400k for my home that this monstrosity was planned right down the street! I've only stepped foot in Walmart maybe twice in my life (both times only to accompany a friend), I have no socio-political gripes with the company-- given recent improvements and pledged concessions. My concern is my property value and the extreme traffic mess that the project will create. The Fort Totten site is only about a mile away. Hello over saturation/cluster f@@ck! What we need at that old Chevy lot is a Metro station.

Why on earth would the DC council allow this? Someone should be protesting at thier offices every day! I certainly plan to call some old friends.

Is there anything else that can be done to block or modify the project at this late stage?
