Endangered snake stands in the way of developing Manchester Wal Mart Supercenter once again

Indigenous pine snakes have already hindered a Manchester “Super Wal Mart” from being established, and a new fight between the developers and land regulators is set to take place Tuesday night.

The proposed super center is to be located on Northampton Boulevard and would overlap the border between Manchester and Toms River. The Department of Environmental Protection shot down the original proposal when they found the land was inhabited by the Northern Pine Snake; a reptile on the agency’s endangered species list.
