GREENWOOD, Ind. (AP) - A retail giant that lost its bid to build a store in Greenwood nearly a decade ago is hoping local leaders look more favorably on a new proposal to erect a smaller store at the same site.
Arkansas-based Wal-Mart wants to build its third store in Johnson County off Smith Valley Road and Ind. 135. The store would be about 50,000 square feet smaller than its other two stores in the county.
It would have about 100 fewer parking spaces than city rules require.
The Daily Journal reports the Greenwood Plan Commission will consider the proposal at a meeting Monday.
Residents say they're concerned about traffic, crime, noise and light pollution. Hundreds rallied against a similar proposal in 2004.
Walmart hopes to begin construction in the spring.
