Citizens in Lower Macungie Township are fighting a developer from Nashville, TN who wants to build a 200,000 s.f. Wal-Mart superstore. The “No-Mart Coalition” says it encourages development “of much less impact than the one proposed for a mega-retailer that will consume raw land, is so heavily traffic-oriented, and takes it shape in the form of a huge, windowless box surrounded by a sea of impervious asphalt”. The No-Mart Coalition has a website, and provides addresses for local municipal officials, and the developer’s address. A key hearing on the project is coming up on April 20th. Visit the Lower Macungie website and consider making a contribution to their effort. Write a letter to the municipal officials listed on the website, and drop a letter to JDN Development Company, T. Scott Smith, 3814 Cleghorn Ave, Nashville, TN 37215.
