Neighbors: Walmart concessions not enough

Aug 14, 2014

Neighbors opposed to a new Walmart Supercenter in northern Vanderburgh County say proposed concessions from the retail giant aren’t enough. 

Walmart is seeking zoning changes from the Board of Zoning Appeals for a new Supercenter, a gas station, and four other business lots on 30 acres at Boonville-New Harmony Road and State Road 57. The retailer has come up with a list of concessions to neighbors worried about increased traffic, bright lights, and noise in their rural neighborhood.

Walmart vote postponed

Jul 18, 2014

A local zoning board has postponed action on a proposed Walmart Supercenter in northern Vanderburgh County. 

The Evansville-Vanderburgh Board of Zoning Appeals voted unanimously to delay by one month consideration of the retail giant’s requests for less parking, more and larger signage, and fewer landscaped islands than required by the county’s zoning ordinance.

The additional month will allow Walmart and zoning board attorney Dirck Stahl to come up with concessions to neighbors who are opposed to the project at Boonville-New Harmony Road and State Road 57.
