Say What?

Here in Pullman, homes on Pioneer Hill and the new Sunnyside Hill development facing the Wal-Mart site are likely to decline in property value due to aesthetic blight, light pollution and other negative impacts.

Funny, I do not see Dierdre and her PARD droogs complaining about the light pollution from Martin Stadium at night. I can see the Martin lights 24 miles away from Pullman. Do you really think Wal-Mart will produce that much light? I do not think so.
I think Wal-Mart had their paperwork in on building before the new Sunnyside developments went up. I will have to check. I do not think real estate prices will lower here in Pullman due to a Wal-Mart despite the national decline in real estate prices. Pullman still cannot fill the demand of new housing needs. If anything, the local real estate prices will rise because of the close proximity of Wal-Mart. People will not have to travel to Moscow.

People said the same thing when LFF was being built. I pretty sure prices and housing develoment was unaffected by LFF.
