Both conservatives and liberals should be supporting the new Wal-Mart-Costco-like supercenter in Auburn. Hundreds, if not thousands of Nevada County residence drive to Roseville to visit Wal-Mart or Cosco at great cost to the environment.
If a Wal-Mart-Costco-like supercenter is build in Auburn, then Nevada County citizens will save 32 miles of driving on every shopping trip. This will reduce the threat of ozone and CO2 pollution, which according to CARB contributes to global warming.
I am sure that with a Wal-Mart-Costco-like supercenter in Auburn Senior Citizens will be demanding four times a day shopping runs by the Gold Country Stage, reducing the threat of ozone and CO2 emissions even more.
Having a Wal-Mart-Costco-like supercenter in Auburn looks like an environmental win-win for everyone. The only losers will be City and County government due to the lost tax revenue and paying for those shopping runs on the Gold Country Stage. Local business have already lost customers to the Roseville Wal-Mart and Cosco stores, but with a Wal-Mart-Costco-like supercenter even closer more people will venture south to shop.
Exit Question: Would bringing a Wal-Mart-Costco-like supercenter to Nevada County be even more effective in saving the environment, or is it better to keep those Wal-Mart-Costco-like supercenter jobs and tax revenue in Placer County?
