Dear Editor, I couldn't agree with you more Mr. Matejczyk. We've only lived in the Gleneagle area for four years, but I can only imagine the devastating effect the proposed Wal-Mart would have on our quality of life. The zoning laws in our area were put in...
Dear Editor, I am in full agreement with Lon Matejczyk concerning the Wal-Mart that is trying to destroy a peaceful way of life on Baptist Road. Growth is going to happen, but I would rather see some quaint shops and nice condos there instead. Wal-Mart will be, to...
Dear Mr. Matejczyk, Thank you for your support of our efforts opposing the rezoning for Wal-Mart on Baptist Road. Appended is a copy of my letter to all five El Paso County Commissioners on that subject. To date only Commissioner Bensberg has offered a reply. As a member of...
Dear Lon: Thanks for the support against the proposed Wal-Mart location in Monument. We firmly oppose a Wal-Mart Supercenter in Monument. We do not need this kind of urban sprawl here. There already are two Wal-Marts located in close proximity to Monument: one is on North Academy Boulevard,...
Dear Mr. Matejczyk, I strongly oppose Wal-Mart's new store at Baptist and I-25 for the same reasons you do. I live about seven miles to the east of the proposed location and the addition of yet another big box in a pristine area is too much, not to mention...
Dear Mr. Matejczk, Just a short note to thank you for your editorial regarding the placement of a Wal-Mart store on Baptist Road. I don't believe that the late Mr. Walton, founder of Wal-Mart, would want to force a Wal-Mart on the Monument community after hearing all the...
Lon, As a resident that will be affected by the subject rezoning proposal I want to express my disapproval with the proposal. This proposal is inconsistent with long-range planning for this area and is incompatible with the neighboring community. Furthermore a perfectly suitable and correctly zoned...
Lon, It has recently come to my attention that an opportunity exists to voice my opinion on the matter of Wal-Mart taking residence off Baptist road. Currently, I am the original homeowner of my house in Fox Run which is a development with a section that backs up to...
Last week I had the honor of moderating a panel at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs for the Springs Youth Challenge. Participants included Robert Wonnett, the dean of students and director of Student Auxiliary Services at UCCS; Larry Schaeffer, director of field operations and integrated...
Dear Lon Matejczyk, Regarding the proposed Baptist Road Wal-Mart, I don't understand the purpose of zoning if a small group of individuals can make a monumental change to an existing zoning plan that was presumably created with the benefit of the community in mind, without the approval of the...
Dear Editor, I'd like to echo and expand upon Mr. Matejczyk's comments in the 25 June issue of the CSBJ about the proposal to place a Wal-Mart Supercenter on Baptist Road. I, too, am concerned about the increased traffic that a Wal-Mart at that location is bound to...
Dear Mr. Matejczyk, I wanted to thank you for your recent editorial about the proposed Wal-Mart on Baptist Road. I too am strongly opposed to the Wal-Mart coming into our serene setting in Monument. The reason we chose this area was because of the open space,...
