Sequim council renews work on Wal-mart appeal
The Sequim city council is back at work on the Wal-Mart debate, with the second half of a hearing on the controversial project this week.
Two weeks ago, the city council held the first of two marathon hearings over large retail development on Sequim’s west side, considering appeals of the proposed Priest Road Wal-mart store.
That meeting brought out a huge crowd, even though the rules of the hearing didn’t allow the general public to speak.
Monday night, council members began to hear the second part of the Wal-mart appeal, the arguments against the binding site plan, or the details of how the property would be developed. But unlike the last meeting, this one drew a relatively small crowd to watch the proceedings.
Meanwhile, the deadline has passed for the additional written comments on the proposed Sequim Village Marketplace. That shopping center is also being appeal by Clallam County, the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and the citizens’ group Sequim First. The council is scheduled to make a decision on that appeal next Monday.
