Harrietstown Town Board Wants Wal-Mart in Downtown

There is a new interesting local development on Wal-Mart. Harrietstown Town Board has passed a resolution stating that it doesn't want Wal-Mart or any other large retailer to build outside the downtown area.

In todays ADE:

Instead board members want a committee consisting of local leaders to encourage development in the downtown area.

The resolution passed by the Harrietstown board authorizes Miller to send a letter to the Saranac Lake village mayor, Saranac Lake-Area Chamber of Commerce executive director and chairman of the Red Carpet Committee. The letter will ask the leaders of these groups to meet in a work session to develop a strategy for drawing retailers to downtown.

Smaller store and downtown location seems to be a reasonable compromise.
