Walmart wants to build a 180,000-square-foot supercenter in Caledonia at 4 Mile and N. Green Bay roads. But it first must clear an initial hurdle—changing Racine County's comprehensive plan.
The county's comprehensive plan conflicts with Caledonia's. The southeast corner of that intersection, where Walmart wants to build, is designated residential in the county's plan. Caledonia, meanwhile, defines that land as mixed use, including commercial and retail.
Walmart is highlighting the inconsistency and asking the plans be aligned. The village's Plan Commission will investigate and formulate their recommendations.
Many residents have opposed the prospect of a Walmart development and would likely be against a land-use change.
But we ask you: should the comprehensive plan be changed?
