BOONE COUNTY

Wal-Mart store back on table

Wal-Mart’s more-than-two-year struggle to build a store on North Michigan Road has been revived, after a judge ruled in favor of the retailer and sent its petition back to the Zionsville Plan Commission to decide.

Arkansas-based Wal-Mart has refiled development plans for the 198,000-squarefoot store, which the commission will consider at its May 19 meeting.

Wal-Mart filed a lawsuit after the commission in May 2006 rejected the retailer’s petition to build on 21 acres at 11000 N. Michigan Road. The commission essentially denied Wal-Mart’s request, saying it didn’t have jurisdiction to rule because a portion of the development site was in Hamilton County. Boone County Special Judge Steve Nation sided with Wal-Mart March 28 and overturned the commission’s claim that it did not have jurisdiction over the project.
