Wednesday night at the Kings Contrivance Village Board meeting I saw a presentation by Wegman's. The Wegman's proposal includes Wegman's paying for significant road improvements in that area where they are planning on building at the corner of Snowden River Parkway and McGaw Road. If more developers demonstrated this willingness to mitigate the traffic problems they create we would not be having such a problem with downtown Columbia redevelopment.
Though I have significant concerns about the impact Wegman's will have on the Village Centers I gained a lot of respect for Wegman's handling of the traffic situation. I suggest that to prepare for Wegman's arrival villages need to quickly develop a plan to evolve their Village Centers to survive Wegman's arrival. I have written on my suggestion on how Village Centers can evolve to meet the modern economy here
