Here, in its 165-page glory, is the application that Wal-Mart and Foulger-Pratt have submitted for Square 2986 (the Curtis Chevrolet site). According to it, "the project will not have a negative noise, environmental, or traffic impact on the community." The traffic study, which begins on page 44, suggests otherwise, and generally reinforces that the site is less than ideal for the accommodation of a big-box store.
ANC 4B's Large Tract Review committee is busy reviewing the application and preparing to deliver feedback and ideas on mitigating the development's impact on its immediate surroundings. From what I understand we have 30 days to submit our comments to the Office of Planning.
I'll have more to say as I continue to slog through it. In the meantime, try your own hand at slogging:
