Commissioners Approve Walmart's Plans
Project will adhere to Stonecrest overlay standards; would create about 300 jobs.
Walmart got unanimous approval Tuesday from the Dekalb County Board of Commissioners Tuesday for its plans for a Memorial Drive store near N. Hairston Rd.
The project will adhere to Stonecrest Overlay standards, and include enhanced landscaping and sidewalks, said Commissioner Sharon Barnes Sutton, who has been a champion for the proposed store, which she called "a catalyst project for Memorial Drive."
The company has said construction would begin on the approximately 152,000 square foot store in the second quarter of 2012, with an opening in 2013.
The store would create about 300 jobs and sit on about 14 acres.
