The Merkel city manager says Walmart real estate has been filed a zoning request. The request is about the property next to Merkel's Subway along I-20. It's currently zoned for agricultural uses and will need to change to business district in order to have a Walmart Express built.
On Monday, April 21st, there will be a public hearing at Heritage Hall at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the rezoning request.
If approved, the next step is give a permit to Walmart real estate. Walmart has recently announced that smaller super centers will open in Stamford and Breckenridge.
