Petition effort ongoing
for proposed Walmart
New Berlin - Anyone who has been to the Walmart in the City Center lately knows that the store is inviting customers to sign a petition, if they would like to see the Walmart Super Center proposed for Greenfield Avenue built.
The store has a display of where the controversial Walmart would be located, showing its placement including how far off the road it would be. If shoppers pause at the display, a staff member invites them to sign the petition.
Currently, Walmart officials are trying to win city approval of the proposed store at 15205 W. Greenfield Ave. The store would need a change in zoning and in the city 2020 Comprehensive Plan. The goal of the petition is to try to show city officials that there is support.
If the Super Center is approved, the current Walmart will be closed.

New Berlin - A second voter forum for the remaining New Berlin mayoral candidates - Mayor Jack Chiovatero and Alderman David Ament - will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday at New Berlin West Middle/High School, 18695 W. Cleveland Ave.
