Two visions for West Louisville Walmart

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Community members are debating a controversial proposal to build a Walmart in West Louisville.

The Walmart is planned at the intersection of 18th and Broadway. The current plan is to build a suburban style store, which means a massive parking lot and surface area.

Community leaders are pushing for more of an urban style, which calls for more foot and bus traffic in the neighborhood.

Representatives from the city's Metro Planning Office were slated to talk with concerned neighbors at West Chestnut Street Baptist Church, but backed out at the last minute.
