It's just a quick post on the Medlock Area Neighborhood Association blog, so I'll direct you there for the information.
Walmart has officially begun preliminary work in the construction of a new "super" store in Suburban Walmart, according to the blog.
You may have heard that on Friday Wal-Mart applied for a land disturbance permit at Suburban Plaza. The engineering staff is reviewing the applicant’s engineering drawings and will provide comments back to the applicant on June 19th. After this initial review and comment meeting, the applicant will have an opportunity to revise their plans and resubmit them for further review and approval.
So, as some residents around the North Decatur/Medlock community fight to stop the development, Walmart and Selig Enterprises, which owns Suburban Plaza, are moving forward.
