West Louisville residents call for end of lawsuit against Walmart development
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- West Louisville residents gathered to call for the end of a lawsuit against a Walmart development.
Previously approved plans for a store at 18th and Broadway have been placed on hold.
The company blames a lawsuit protesting the approved design for the building.
Some residents are calling for a resolution, saying the store would bring many jobs to the area.
Representatives from the Justice Resource Center say they plan to call for a meeting with the mayor.
"All over this community, they have built Walmarts and there hasn't been any trouble. But the very place we need a Walmart, we got problems. We need to get to the bottom of this problem also," said Milton Seymore, chairman of the Justice Resource Center.
Rally attendees also honored the memory of Justice Resource Center founder Louis Coleman, who died seven years ago last weekend.
