Walmart issues statement on Suburban Plaza ruling

Share

Decaturish.com received the following statement from Walmart regarding a recent ruling that will allow the Suburban Plaza project to move forward.

In an emailed statement, Walmart spokesman Bill Wertz said, “We are gratified the project can proceed, as it will greatly benefit the community. Walmart is looking forward to creating 300 local new jobs and providing residents with access to a wide range of affordable groceries and merchandise.”

Last week a DeKalb County Superior Judge ruled that community group Good Growth DeKalb lacks legal standing to appeal DeKalb County’s decision to give Selig Enterprises a building permit for the project.

The Walmart could be under construction by the end of the year. In addition to Walmart, the project may also include a, “LA Fitness (which will include a daycare facility), HomeGoodsJo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, and Ross Dress for Less” according to a letter from Selig Enterprises posted on the Medlock Area Neighborhood Association website.
