From Harford County Councilman Jim McMahan:
To Those Concerned:
Some members of the community have communicated directly with Wal-Mart regarding the proposed site at MD 924 and PlumTree Rd. One response received by a constituent indicated that Wal-Mart had already submitted their formal site plan and traffic study to the county Planning and Zoning Dept.
I share the response below from Mr Shane Grimm of the County’s planning dept. This is the very latest information as of 3:45 PM 10 September 2021

Mr. ( Name Deleted)
I can assure you that Bowman Consulting has not submitted a site plan or Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) for review through the Development Advisory Committee (DAC) as of this afternoon. They have only submitted a Forest Stand Delineation (FSD) for review at this time, which is required prior to the submission of a site plan and TIA through DAC. The FSD has not been approved at this time. All DAC submission are posted on our website after they are received.

NO walmart!!! I have not shopped at a walmart for 1&1/2 years now out of protest of the corp’s re-locating idea. BOYCOTT wally-world!!!!!
Who cares if you don’t shop at WalMart? I can’t wait until the new Walmart opens.
Who cares if you can’t wait to shop at the new store?
I guess we settled that debate.
County zoning is re-evaluated every 8 years. BUT the county executive can revisit it at any time.
Mr. Craig can stop the Walmart by downgrading the zoning.
All he has to do is act.
As I pointed out to you before, this is not really true, because although he can iniate the process, it is a PROCESS. Which would include a lot of work and time for P&Z, for public review, action by the Count Council, etc. I would guess the best possible speed would be 3-6 months.
AND, on top of that, Walmart will be sure to submit their site plan before any of that is complete and the changes would not likely be applicable to them.
AND, even if the County wanted to try to enforce that, Walmart would take the county to court, where the county would most likely lose, and spend a hefty sum of money in the process. Wasted money.
The best bet anyone has, other than a currently unknown technicality, is convincing Walmart not to do it.
