Whole Foods in EDO?

Latest EDO News & Views newsletter (June 2012) details meetings with Mayor about working to secure a Whole Foods in EDO. The Neighborhood Association has identified the First Baptist Church parking lot (on Broadway just north of Central) as ideal location. The group listed the following attributes of location:

1.  Large tract size.
2.  Better transportation access from all points of the compass.
3.  More quality residential adjacent. 
4.  No psychological barrier of railroad tracks coming from the east.
5.  Existing buildings on the First Baptist Church that could be converted to high quality rental housing.
