Big Box Blow-Up

Posted By on Fri, Jul 6, 2007 at 9:59 AM

As we predicted a few weeks ago on the blog and in The Skinny, City Hall has rejected the Consumer Choice initiative, brought to you by Wal-Mart. If approved by voters in November, the proposition would have overturned the portion of the city's big-box ordinance that restricts grocery sales in big-box stores.

The city's legal reasoning: Zoning law isn't subject to the initiative process.

Next: Will Wally-Mart take the city to court?

And will John Kromko's Tucson Water Users Bill of Rights, which would eliminate the city's garbage fee, ban the delivery of treated effluent to households and shut down future water connections, also face a legal challenge?

More in next week's Skinny!
