At least three big-box hardware storesincluding Home Depothave been courting Corvallis. Home Depot had a site in mind, but they needed some zoning changes to make it happen. Last night the city council decided not to change the potential research/technology site for Home Depot: Home Depot plan shot down
. On one hand it would be convenient to have a giant megastore here (especially now that I own a home), but I have to weigh choice and availability with lifestyle. I chose to live in a small town, and at some point you hope the character of the town you want to live in takes priority over financial gain.
Upon futher review it was the planning commission
that said no, not the city council. So anything could happen.
