Proposed Sioux Falls Wal-Mart store faces legal challenges

Posted: Updated:
A proposed new Wal-Mart Supercenter in Sioux Falls is facing a second legal challenge.

Sioux Falls voters on April 8 approved an ordinance clearing the way for the store. But some homeowners in the area want a judge to bar the city from issuing a building permit until after their allegations of misleading ballot wording are addressed in court.

Meanwhile, the state Supreme Court on Tuesday was hearing arguments in a case brought by the Save Our Neighborhood group last year. Members maintain that the city improperly annexed the land set aside for the store.

Wal-Mart has said it has made several changes to make the planned store a better fit for the neighborhood, and that the store has supporters in the community.
