The long contested sale of a Springfield church to Walmart to construct a Neighborhood Market is expected to move forward. This after the Missouri Supreme Court chose not to review an appeals court ruling that blocks a public vote on the rezoning for the store.

A citizens group opposed to a new Walmart in Springfield is vowing to continue its fight after a judge has ruled that a referendum petition to overturn the city’s zoning decision allowing for the market cannot be used. KSMU’s Scott Harvey has details.

Mike Textor is with the Law Offices of Polsinelli, who represent Life360 Church. He says Tuesday’s ruling allows his client to sell their property at Grand and Campbell to Walmart.
