North Hill Wal-Mart Voted Down

Posted: Updated:

North Hill residents came to the city council Monday evening with their concerns on the possible new Wal-Mart being built on North Hill.

Many people say traffic, safety and crime are the main reasons why the North Hill location isn't ideal for residents. Although growth in the area is a good thing, residents say they don't want a Wal-Mart in their backyard.

"So why is it appropriate to say that we're going to put this Wal-Mart in the middle of our residence that's going to increase crime and our security? We bought our house 15 months ago, no idea that a Wal-Mart was going to go in," says Chad Hagen, North Hill resident.

City council did vote down the Wal-Mart ordinance seven to six with one alderman abstaining.
