Proposed Walmart Supercenter for Waldorf

I have been asked a few times about what is going on with Waldorf getting a Walmart super center.  Currently there is a plan for it to go into the Waldorf Station project at the North end of Charles County where the old embassy dairy facility was.  You can read about the general plan for Waldorf Station here: http://www.waldorfstation.com .  Well besides the backlash it got like when La Plata was trying to get one, the developers of the land which is Chaney Enterprises has to go in to the county for a change to the original plan.  The building that they want to build is larger than what is currently allowed for the zoning so it needs a special exception.  Also the bigger building will require moving the proposed western parkway expansion (in yellow below) to make it go around the back of the Walmart (orange line).  That brings it closer to the Mattawoman Creek which of course will upset other people.  So currently its into the county board of appeals and they are going over every detail about the building and how it will effect the area, look, etc.  I believe there are a series of hearings for this and you can watch them on the county website. http://www.charlescounty.org/apps/mediacenter/public/listEventsPublic.jsp

We have nothing to do with this project so I don't get any inside updates.  If anything new is put out to the public I will try to add it here.    Please remember that if you comment I have to approve it before it shows up on the page.  I'm trying to keep any spam off of here as much as possible.
