Tampa, Florida -- On Thursday night, residents will voice their opposition to City Council members and tell them why they don't want the superstore in their Seminole Heights neighborhood.
Residents received plan of the potential 121,000-square-foot Walmart back in March that will be built on vacant land at 1820 E. Hillsborough Avenue.
After receiving the papers, one resident wrote about it on the Official Unofficial Seminole Heights Blog, prompting a variety of reactions from residents. Some were supportive of neighborhood development, while others worried about the negative impact it could have on traffic and local businesses.
