Sioux Falls City Council members had the chance to see rezoning plans for land a new Walmart is set to be built on.
The Sioux Falls Planning Commission presented council members with the plans to rezone the plot of land on 85th Street and Minnesota Avenue.
Two weeks ago they gave the council their recommendation to rezone the land from agricultural to commercial.
The 39 acres sits across from a residential development with more than 100 single family homes.
As we've reported, the rezoning of this land has stirred up a lot of controversy.
Residents of the neighborhood are worried a big box store will create too much traffic and make the area unsafe.
A second reading and hearing where residents can voice their opinions is set for July 2.
