Urban Fold

Gainseville Park 1; Wal-Mart 0

The Gainesville City Commission rejected a measure that would have let Wal-Mart develop Northside Park.

"After more than three hours of debate and residents' comments, commissioners voted 4-3 to stop considering a proposal that would have allowed Northside Park, a 32-arce property at NW 34th Street and U.S. 441, to be traded for a 91-acre property Wal-Mart would buy on NW 53rd Avenue and U.S. 441."
