As you may recall, way back in November 2006, we started our quest to stop the two-story, 200,000+ sq. ft. Wal-Mart Supercenter at Northcross Mall.

That monstrous site plan is no longer in play. In December 2008, the city officially approved a new plan for a much, much smaller store that saves the old trees and calls for more green space too.

Friends and neighbors, we said from Day One that it was NOT a done deal and we stood our ground, and that is worth celebrating!

Were it not for neighbors coming together for more than TWO YEARS to demand to be heard at City Hall, to link arm-in-arm at around Northcross, to rally at Town Halls, to protest on Saturday mornings, to distribute 10,000 newsletters, to place thousands of yard signs and tie yards of red ribbon, to hold a bazaar & thrift sale, to get feisty at Feisty Fest, to alert the media, to sue, and to never stop fighting, we would have not seen a day that the developer & Wal-Mart decided to do it neighborly and do it right.

We still have work to do to get an agreeable Term Sheet, but it's time to get together, celebrate our success, and tell your neighbors, "Thanks for making a difference."
