New Wal-Mart Supercenter Approved With One Condition

The go-ahead has been given for Tyler's third Wal-Mart Supercenter, and future neighbors now say they're satisfied with the move.

The Supercenter will be built just northeast of the intersection of Troup Highway and Shiloh Road in South Tyler. It could be a year or more before the store opens.

Wednesday morning, Tyler City Council heard from residents of nearby homes, and there was debate over what kind of wall would be built between the homes and the Supercenter.  A wall designed to cut down noise.

"This is a type of fence that Wal-Mart has put in at many of their subdivisions, and this is what we're asking for. I don't think it's too much for us homeowners to have a litte privacy in our subdivision," said Jan Wood, resident of the area.

The City Council approved the zoning change to accommodate the new Supercenter, on the condition Wal-Mart build a 10 foot wall like homeowners wanted.
