City Council Revisits Walmart Market
While several speakers during a public hearing on Walmart's plan to build a store near Grand and Campbell chose to bash the world's largest retailer, a former Springfield City Councilman urged the current council to think about the bigger issue of property rights.
Nick Ibarra says the petition process allows a few to dictate what others can do with land inside the city.
He wants council to repeal the the zoning ordinance and then reverse the decision to allow for another neighborhood market.
Council could also give voters the final say in August.
