Wal-Mart in the Wetlands

Friday's Sun reports that, in response to citizen outcry, the Maryland Department of the Environment is going to hold a public hearing on the wetlands filling license that has been applied for by the developer looking to put a Wal-Mart in the wetlands of the Little Patuxent River. The mounting public opposition has also caused Wal-Mart to offer to scale back the size of its store by 20%. Traffic concerns remain a major issue among opponents of the project.

Once the date of the hearing becomes available, I will post it here.
