    I’m not going to write a comprehensive recap of the Walmart meeting. Would take too more time than I have. If TBD or another blog/newsource authors a good recap I’ll be sure to publish a link.

    What I can say is that the meeting was a bit crazy. Three video cameras were running at all times. Walmart did not attend. However the Bennett Group, which is developing the project, was there with a former Washington Redskin Brig Owens serving as their lead spokesperson.

    Councilmembers Michael Brown and Tommy Wells both took the stage to speak about the process and answer questions from the community. Wells made some great points but rather than try to paraphrase them I’m hoping he makes his thoughts on the Ward 6 Walmart available on his website soon.

    I left after two hours when the community testimony segment began.
