Chanhassen Planning Commission shoots down Walmart proposal

The Chanhassen Planning Commission unanimously recommended not approving the proposed Walmart store at the southwest corner of Powers Boulevard and MN-5.   Anti-Walmart forces turned out in force for the meeting, packing the City Council Chambers and overflow rooms with a crowd estimated at 200.  The proposal may still come before the City Council later this month, but given the recommendation of the Planning Commission and the strong public reaction, the plan in this form appears to be essentially dead.
