Would anyone care to explain why on Earth we, or anyone needs a Walmart SuperCenter in the Keys? This is something I really would like to know the answer to. Has anyone actually asked if the residents of the Keys even want to Walmart SuperCenter? How about whether or not the land will actually hold the building up, without having the island sink. The Keys are one of those rare place sin the US where not a whole heck of a lot seems to change all that often and rampant development is often shunned… this strikes as as one of those moments where progress is being forced down peoples throats whether they like it or not. If you’ve ever spent any real time in the Keys those locals who have chosen to call it home are often very happy when they say things like, “I haven’t been above mile marker 101 in 20 years”. That’s for a reason, they don’t really like or have any real reason to be part of the “bigger is better” American-Not-Dream.
Note: By the way, sorry for the awful image, Walmart has yet to release a good rendering. Maybe that’s a good sign?
