The old Albertsons has been empty for a very long time, so I am glad to hear that the city is talking about filling the wasted space (“New Walmart on Pacific Street? Oct. 4). While it would attract customers right off the freeway, it will also be useful to local shoppers who used to shop at Albertsons. But it might attract so many people, there would be more cars on the surrounding streets. Thus, more traffic.
If the city knows that and has a way to compensate for the congested road, it seems like a great idea for pumping more money into this town's economy.
