Foulger-Pratt, the developer behind the complex planned for the intersection of Georgia and Missouri, has now pulled out of a community meeting set for tomorrow night, according to the Brightwoodian.  In addition, it’s likely at this point that the Curtis Chevrolet car barn will not be part of the plan for the new location.

If you’d like to attend the community meeting, it’s tomorrow night at 7pm at the Emory United Methodist Church’s Fellowship Hall at 6100 Georgia Ave NW.  Many upset with this about face from Foulger-Pratt will note that you can email their representative Dick Knapp at to voice your displeasure.

Update: We spoke with Walmart this afternoon, and they have confirmed that Foulger-Pratt is once again attending the development meeting tomorrow night, and that they are firmly committed to the Georgia & Missouri location.
