"Save Our Neighborhood" says Walmart is not the issue


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - The “Save Our Neighborhood” group of south Sioux Falls says it doesn’t oppose commercial development at 85th and Minnesota, just not a Walmart Supercenter.

     Neighborhood spokeswoman Dana VanBeek-Palmer says the group is concerned about transition from commercial to single family housing and increased traffic.

     VanBeek-Palmer says the issue is not about Walmart.  She says neighbors would more than welcome a Walmart Market, for example.  She says other cities have Walmart stores that are more along the lines of 50 or 60 thousand square feet.  VanBeek-Palmer says that's what would fit in the neighborhood and that's what they would like to see there.   

      VanBeek-Palmer says the neighborhood can’t accept becoming a 41st Street and Louise Avenue intersection.

     “Save Our Neighborhood” is suing the city on the grounds that it did not obtain Lincoln County’s approval when it annexed the property.
