West Valley Wal-Mart Coming Soon

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash - It looks like there is an end in site to the West Valley Wal-Mart project.  For years there has been talk and plans, but still no construction on the land off of 64th Avenue and Nob Hill Boulevard.

Bruce Benson with the Yakima's Planning Department says the wait now is for the store's building plans.  Those expect to be submitted this March where they will be reviewed for almost six weeks.  Benson says he expects the store to open by the holiday season this year.

Some people who spoke to KNDO Monday are still against the project and are not looking forward to construction, but others are tired of waiting.

"Well if they're going to do it, then lets do it, we've been hearing about it for the last umpteen years now.  Lets either get it on the road or cancel the whole thing all together," says Lee Poulson.

Once building plans are received by the city, the land can start being cleared and leveled according to Benson.
