Lodi Council Gives WM Go-ahead

As described here and here, the Lodi, CA city council has been set on requiring WM to rent or demolish its old building before building a supercenter across the street. An agreement was reached that gives WM the option of selling the building too:

The Lodi city council Wednesday night voted unanimously to approve a proposed Wal-Mart Supercenter, ending two years of arguments and public meetings.

Councilmembers voted 4-0 to approve an agreement between the City of Lodi and developer Darryl Browman that eases a requirement that Wal-Mart find a new tenant for its existing store before it starts building the supercenter. That condition was amended to include demolition or sale of the building.

Next up are the lawsuits...
