Zionsville turns down Walmart request

February 13, 2013

Zionsville’s Board of Zoning Appeals on Tuesday rejected retail giant Walmart’s request to build a bigger store at 10950 N. Michigan Road. Residents opposed the plans for a 156,621-square-foot Supercenter, open 24 hours a day, because of its size and its potential impact on local businesses. The proposed store needed a zoning variance because it would have been about 31,000 square feet larger than the maximum size permitted. Walmart must wait a year before asking again.
