ATLANTA-The Association of West Cascade Communities, fiercely opposing a planned $10-million, 185,000-sf Wal-Mart Supercenter in south Fulton County, has won its battle against the Bentonville, AR-based retailer. County commissioners voted 6 to 1 against a site rezoning for the store.

However, developer and land owner Delta Cascade Partners plans to re-apply in six months for a rezoning of the controversial 43-acre location at Cascade Road and Interstate 285, brokers and retail consultants following the site skirmish tell GlobeSt.com.

Wal-Mart decided to hold off on the Cascade Road development site prior to the commissioners’ vote, even as the developer pressed on for the rezoning, brokers who attended the public commission meeting tell GlobeSt.com. Residents told commissioners they feared increased traffic from the planned store would present new safety hazards to the community’s way of life.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has filed preliminary development plans for three Supercenters totaling an estimated 613,000 sf in Fulton, Forsyth and DeKalb counties. Forsyth and DeKalb counties are still reviewing the retailer’s plans.
