Calvert County Governement

After intense lobbying by locals, Calvert County officials passed tough regulations last summer that limited the size of big-box stores in quaint town centers such as Dunkirk's. But Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, appears to have hit upon a novel way around the rules: divide the store in two. Wal-Mart plans to build a 74,998-square-foot store cheek by jowl with a 22,689-square-foot garden center in Calvert County.

 

The two Wal-Marts -- each with its own entrance, utilities, bathrooms and cash registers -- would have a combined area 30 percent larger than the 75,000-square-foot limit for a single store in Dunkirk. The tactic is the latest example of Wal-Mart's increasingly creative responses to the scores of jurisdictions, including Prince William and Montgomery counties, that have passed regulations limiting the size and location of big-box stores.

This is the most backward form of local government in the country. The officials could give a rats ass about the citizens and employees.
