Community group to hold meeting on Walmart plan


A Huntsville community group is taking a stand Wednesday night against a proposed Walmart Super center. Residents said they don't want a new store in their neighborhood and are worried about traffic, noise and crime.

In the proposed plan, a developer will lease the Mason Plaza shopping center property to Walmart.

Members of the Midtown Huntsville Association will hold a community meeting at the downtown public library in the main auditorium at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Organizers said Mayor Tommy Battle, city councilman Bill Kling and several city department heads will be there.

The mayor said if Walmart's guidelines check out they have the right to open a store.

If the new Walmart Super center does open at Mason Plaza it will replace the Walmart on Drake Avenue. No word yet on what they plan to do with that area.
