Leave the property a golf course; a public course would be surely welcomed in our area. More shopping malls will not!! Margaret Finesilver

Everyone needs to understand that the developer can still build on the Oakwook property even if the zoning is not changed. It means that anything built would be residential, not retail. As First Interstate owns the property they have the right to build anything that follows the current zoning laws. I don't see them withdrawing from the property if the zoning is not changed. It would be next to impossible to sell to another developer as they would also have to abide by zoning restrictions. Something will be built that is for sure.
