The Sioux Falls city council voted yes to annex a section of land at 85th and south Minnesota Avenue.
Walmart would like to build one of two new stores on the 40 acre site.
Tuesday night the council voted simply on annexation.
Wednesday night the city planning commission will take up the issue of zoning for the property.
It is located in Lincoln County and is currently zoned as agricultural land. The planning commission would have to rezone it to commercial in order for the Walmart to move forward.
It would then go back to the city council on May 7 for their approval.
Tuesday night many residents living in the area voiced their opposition to the proposed Walmart.
