Bowie residents protest proposed Walmart.

EP-140809780

BOWIE – “We don’t want a Walmart!” Todd Sharpe yelled into a megaphone while standing in the middle of Glenn Dale Road. “We don’t need a Walmart!”

Sharpe, a Bowie resident, joined more than 50 other residents gathered along Glenn Dale Road and Annapolis Road to protest approval of plans for a Walmart store in the Duvall Village Shopping Center.
The Prince George’s County Planning Board approved Wal-Mart’s plan earlier this year, which includes 77,916 square feet of space and 513 parking spaces. The District Council elected to review the Planning Board’s decision, but decided to wait until the fall before making a decision while appeals from Wal-Mart and the community play out in court.
