Best NIMBY

The Walmart in Remington

This year, a DUDE (Developer Under Delusions of Entitlement) decided he wanted to bring a Walmart to Baltimore. The BDC was all for it, so he went to UDARP, and is currently seeking a PUD. But a bunch of NIMBY citizens interested in SmUG (SMart Urban Growth)—namely, Bmore Local and Baltimore CAN—tried to get the DUDE to sign a community benefits agreement. Others—like the RNA and GRIA and CVCA and the UFCW—questioned details of the plan, including the city’s TIS and LEED certification procedures. FAQs included: WTF? And: what about all the SUVs and CR-Vs? The outcome is TBD, but we’re afraid it’s RIP to this NIMBY.
