I agree that the city council should not worry about if Wal-Mart can hire staff, did they ask the same question of Marketplace or Cashwise? As to the comments made at the city council meeting on Monday, the residents of Eagle Landing are concerened about traffic on 27th street. We were also worried when the Eagle Landing Development was discussed but we were told that this is progress and we must accept that our quiet neighborhood is going to change. We were also told that when you live next to a field you need to understand that it will be built on eventually. The traffic on 27th which was a deadend street just two years ago has increased but that is because the residents of Eagle Landing. Where was the uproar about traffic when Marketplace, White Drug and the Hyatt House were being discussed? Same traffic, same roads.

obama's job is to destroy the whole US way of life. The messiah will get around to us one day if He's not on vacation....again. it must be frustrating for His sheeple when the rest of us can't see the greatness that oozes from His every Majestic pore. There - now Dustoff can take the day off.

I have to wonder where there consistancy is? I feel in SW Minot they didn't get the press coverage, the support and even common courtesy community relations from the developers, and in addiiton, each time there was a hearing on the land over the years, those who received notices and how they received them were varied. In addiiton, not all appropriate parties received the notices. So, what's the scoop, where do you draw the line. Don't get me wrong growth is needed, but there is a fine line........

There is increased traffic everywhere in town regardless. I should go cry to the city council that traffic will remain bad on the south side cause everyone from the north side will continue to flood my neighborhood on their way to shop. And OH NO, Home Depot is coming to the south side, what congestion that is going to cause being so close to Menards, cry cry some more. None of our roads were designed for this, just like everywhere in oil country. Face it, traffic is the new norm, and yes it *****, but really just deal with it.

It's a non-issue now, they few that thought they represented Minot won and now Wal-Mart has said "See ya". Thanks you for keeping our only store overcrowded. I hope those folks have the same consideration when going to Kohl's right by Green Acres. I better not see Ms. Moen in the south side shopping either.

leftwing, obviously you have not driven by there, that is pretty much new residential. Now, there is 150+ acres for sale north of Minot on the east side of 83 just across form the Sunset Memorial Cemetery. A Wal-Mart wouldn't bother anyone if they build there.

Strongly agree with the editorial. The east, south and west side streets of our existing Wallmart are quieter than many of our residential streets. The residents self-centered behavior means we all must drive through town up to 4 miles to shop Wallmart. Just think of the conjestion and expense that causes.
