Stop a 24-hour WalMart in Rochester Hills sign now

To the Rochester Hills Mayor Barnett, City Attorney, and City Council,

We, the undersigned residents of Rochester Hills, oppose a 24-hour operation at the Wal-Mart Super Center that has been approved for development at the southwest corner of Adams and M59 Roads by the Rochester Hills City Council. THERE ARE MANY REASONS WHY A 24-HOUR OPERATION IS INAPPROPRIATE AND CAUSES US SERIOUS CONCERN.

1) There is extensive national documentation that Wal-Mart stores have resulted in INCREASED CRIME IN NEARBY NEIGHBORHOODS.
2) It is documented that Wal-Mart stores have SIGNIFIGANT CRIME IN THEIR PARKING LOTS and stores and a nighttime operation will increase that potential.
3) Wal-Mart stores result in INCREASED NEED FOR POLICE SERVICES because of the level of crime they bring. This has resulted in the need for higher taxes to support police involvement in many communities.
4) A 24-hour operation will lead to INCREASED NIGHTTIME TRAFFIC AND NOISE in the area.
5) A 24-hour Wal-Mart will lead to DECREASED PROPERTY VALUES to the surrounding neighborhoods.
6) A 24-hour operation will NEGATIVLEY AFFECT THE ABILITY TO ATTRACT to the area CORPORATIONS AND BUSINESSES that provide high quality jobs.

Rochester Hills City Government, we want you to STAND FIRM in limiting the hours of operation for the Wal-Mart Super Center that the City has approved in Rochester Hills. Further, we want you to limit the height and intensity of the lights in the parking lot in order to decrease impact on the neighborhoods in the area. In addition, we want you to insist on a meeting with the representatives of Wal-Mart and the Oakland County Sheriffs department to review and monitor crime statistics at 6 months and 1 year after opening of the store.
