Winter Springs residents have signed over 1,200 petitions in under 48 hours, including more than one thousand petitions in a single day, to fight a proposal to put a Super Walmart along 434 and Vistawilla Drive. The petition drive was sponsored by the Winter Springs Community Association, which has also sponsored the Fix 434 Traffic & Safety Initiative for the past few years.
Jesse Phillips, President of the Winter Springs Community Association, made the following statement:
“The response to our petition is overwhelming. People are upset about the broken campaign promises of our commissioners and this outpouring of opposition against a Super Walmart shows the First Amendment is alive and well.”
