Politics from the Palouse to Puget Sound

The end is finally in sight. The city has set the dates, times and locations for the PARD appeals to the SEPA and site plan approvals to be heard.
Hearing examiner sets Wal-Mart Appeal Hearings

The city of Pullman announced today that Hearing Examiner John Montgomery has set January 13, 2006 and January 20, 2006 for the hearing dates on the appeal of Public Works Director Mark Workman’s site plan approval and State Environmental Protection Act (SEPA) determination on the proposed Wal-Mart.

The hearings will begin at 10:30 a.m. on both days. The first day of the hearing will be held at the Gladish Auditorium and the hearing will be concluded on the second day in City Council Chambers. Public testimony will be taken during the hearing.

City Attorney Laura McAloon commented, “This is the next step in the appeals process and the city expects that the hearing examiner will be able to issue a decision by the end of January based on the hearing schedule.”
It's going to be vitally important that as many of us as possible attend these hearings to counteract the anti-growth forces. Stay tuned to Palousitics and the BREO home page for updates.

Thanks for the link. I looked up that story and it is indeed ugly. The Union targeted little children by dressing up as Santa and his elves, then they handed out wrapped, empty boxes to the little kids. Remember that when you support unionized grocery stores. Part of the money you spend goes toward supporting union activities like the one in this story. For that matter, part of the money goes toward PARD.
