Enquirer Journal Online:Board of Adjustment OKs Wal-Mart Supercenter in Marvin

The board’s five members met for an hour and a half Monday night, listening to lawyers from the county, Wal-Mart and the affected neighborhoods hammer out the conditions. Marvin residents said that despite the vote by the board, the fight isn’t over. Resident Liza Kravis said the next step is to look at what options are viable. Citizens have 30 days to file an appeal to Superior Court, she said. “Hopefully, the county will appeal with us,” Kravis said. “If that doesn’t work, there are still two more appellate courts where we can be heard.”

Battling the world’s largest retailer has required money, but Kravis said the residents in Marvin are ready to continue the fight if necessary. Kravis said the people have come forward to respond to the need so far.

Meg Crowley from the Somerset development was one of the Marvin residents left shaking her head after the vote.
