Get Caught Up On Our Walmart Coverage

This isn't Walmart's first kick at the Caledonia can when it comes to pitching potential projects. But well before Walmart, the Village Board commissioned studies to look at what kinds of development would do well here.

Walmart presented plans to hundreds of residents at North Park Elementary School in October, outlining the 24-hour, 180,000-square-foot store it wants to build on 22 acres near the intersection of 4 Mile Road and North Green Bay Road.

We're following the Walmart story line closely. Here is our coverage on the topic since they announced their concept plan in September and a few stories we thought might be helpful to understand the development process.

Let me correct myself-per the Village Agenda and Minutes, the Land use Plan Commitee has had 4 meetings with agendas from june 2011 through Jan 2012. No minutes from any.

I love how the folks claiming Patch didn't give the issue good coverage aren't here whining about the lack of coverage.... Or, apologizing. :) good work, D

Dear Keep on, the Land use plans were for the old Walmart location on State Hwy 31 & 4 Mile. This new location is on North Green Bay Road and 4 Mile (Between Warren Industries & The Mosquito Inn). Two different locations, two different concepts, ideas and executions.

Quiet Conservative-the Land Use Plan is for all of Caledonia and yes, I am aware there is a separate determination of use for each subarea. The Land Use Plan Committee as I understand it was to be looking at some, if not all of these areas when discussing changes, best use, etc. And from the articles it looked like resident input was a consideration in this review. But I have yet to see any agendas or minute from these meetings. It may be an oversight on my part, but I have looked on several spots on the Village website.
