Re: “School's Out

Go ahead and give Trader Joes a call and ask them to build a store in South Salt Lake City.

See what kind of response you get.

Re: “School's Out

Why would Garbett Homes build 30 million dollars in 350k homes and then build a commercial development on 3300 South that would decrease the value of those homes they are trying to sell to the public ? They would Not. They want the best commercial development on 3300 South they can get. So do I. It would be self defeating for them to want anything less. Walmart is not the Evil Empire. They are the largest grocery store in the country. For the city let's try and get all we can out of them. The 3rd vote for the city council is the one everyone should get involved in. The Design of the buildings. I do not favor the cookie cutter design for the Walmart Grocery store. They have many designs for their neighborhood grocery stores and we should be pushing Walmart for a custom design. Something the city can be proud of.

Re: “School's Out

Garbett just told me that our mayor will not talk to them at all about granite. Garbett finds it very strange since they always talk to the mayor when they come into a city to build a development. And they are usually welcomed by the mayor.

Re: “School's Out

I still don't understand what you want on 3300 south? Do you want a strip mall with houses behind it ? Do you want houses built right on 3300 south ? Do you want a sidewalk café 2 blocks long? Even if whole foods or trader joes wanted to build on it the people of this city can not afford to shop there. It needs to be a regular grocery store that we can walk to. Are you against Garbett building the 80 homes at 350k each too. Do you know how much that will improve my neighborhood? Why would Grarbett build these homes and then build something on 3300 south that would lower the prices of the homes they are trying to sell to the public? They wouldn't. They want the best possible commercial develop on 3300 south they can get. What about the new assisted living complex being built on the property east of granite. These older people can't drive. Don't they deserve a grocery store and pharmacy that they can walk to and still feel independent ?

Re: “School's Out

So much wrong information in this story. The Walmart grocery store is 40,000 square feet. not 50,000. It is grocery store only not a superstore. The Walmart does not replace the 80 new homes. They will still be built there on the south end of the 4 acre park. The grocery store is set back on 3300 south with 6 smaller buildings in front of it for restaurants and retail. A 75,000 sq. ft assisted living complex is going to be built on the property just east of granite on 3300 south.
