The Giant is waking up...

I just received an update that Wal-Mart is moving forward with its plans for their upcoming store in Cornelius! This was provided from none-other than Dave Waffle, City Manager, Cornelius in his weekly "Hot Off the Griddle" piece. In his e-mail distro message he wrote "Here's this week's report. I hope you enjoy some more good news. This time about the Wal-Mart store and a Fire Department grant."
Commentary: Congratulations to those at the City of Cornelius, PACLand, Wal-Mart, and all others that were involved in each stage of planning! I for one, look forward to the Development in our little City and wish us all a better tomorrow.
