It was the third time the item appeared on the CPC’s agenda, but the first to actually get a vote. Previously, the item had been postponed to allow Walmart representatives to make changes based on City and public input. The Commission voted 6-3 to deny the application, despite a recommendation to approve from the Planning Division.

Walmart can now appeal the CPC’s decision directly to City Council where Representatives and the Mayor would determine the project’s ultimate fate. Walmart officials have stated that there is no other suitable site in the area and plans for the store will be scrapped if City Council denies the application.
The issue will most likely be heard at the June 18 City Council meeting.
