Moratorium on Wal-Mart / Four Seasons development

Plymouth council enacts moratorium on Four Seasons Mall site


A new moratorium in Plymouth would block a Wal-Mart or any other development at the Four Seasons Mall for up to a year.

The council accepted a $100,000 grant from the Metropolitan Council to study the Four Seasons Mall site and approved an interim ordinance temporarily prohibiting development on the site during a Dec. 14 meeting. The moratorium is intended to protect the planning process, Community Development Director Steve Juetten said.

Earlier in the meeting, opponents of a Wal-Mart filled the council chambers as Plymouth resident Ray Mowery presented hundreds of signatures on a petition against the store.

Wal-Mart has not completed an application to build a store on the site but did pay for a city study regarding the impacts of a Wal-Mart store on traffic. The Arkansas-based retailer closed on purchasing the site earlier this month.

Comment: I favor development of this site.

  1. That mall needs to be leveled and something decent needs to be put in place. Does not surprise me what Plymouth did, I guess they can shoot themselves in the foot economically if they want to!
