POLL: Should Decatur Annex Suburban Plaza?

What do you think of Decatur Mayor Bill Floyd's suggestion that the city annex the shopping center to influence development there?

Last week, Decatur Mayor Bill Floyd gave his State of the City address and spoke about an important issue for Decatur: Suburban Plaza, where developers want to build a Super Walmart.

Specifically, he . He also said he wanted to annex the commercial property at the corners of North Decatur and Clairmont roads.

He's clearly not a big fan of Walmart. Or developers like Selig Enterprises. He said so. It remains unclear what effect (if any) annexation would have on Selig's plans to build a Walmart Supercenter in Suburban Plaza.

So, do you agree with him? Vote in our poll below and feel free to sound off in the comments.

I hate to think that people are going to vote for annexation -- and increasing their neighbors' property taxes -- to keep Wal-Mart out. Stop being ignorant! It's not going to matter a hill of beans; Wal-Mart is coming, regardless! Let's keep their (Wal-Mart's) taxes in the COUNTY.

The City of Decatur can't keep anything "cleaned up." Why think it will start with the annexation of Suburban Plaza?

Exactly. It's all about money.

It's about the City's inability to do much of anything without more money to mismanage.
