Community Standards Benefit Everyone!

Ask Our Mayor & Councilmen to Support Wal-Mart Resolution

Due to its proximity to town, development at Capital Plaza impacts our neighborhood and sets the tone for future development along the Route 202 and Route 450 corridors.  The Town Council is on the record as supporting the opportunity to bring much-needed shopping into our community.  However, there must be a reasonable accommodation of the surrounding communities.

Progressive Cheverly is asking Wal-Mart and the Nellis Corporation to be good corporate neighbors by complying with basic community standards.  We are supporting a Cheverly Town resolution on Community Standards.  The resolution is scheduled for a vote by the Town Council at the September 8th, 2006 Cheverly Town Meeting, 8 pm.
