A second Wal-Mart is one more step closer to being built in Greenville.
For nearly two hours city council and various residents in the area spoke about the issue which turned the meeting into an emotional event.
Those emotions boiled over after Monday night's city council meeting.
Arguments between people were taking place after city council's final decision.
In a four to two vote city council approved a request by W.L.A. Enterprises to rezone nearly 30 acres in east Greenville into a commercial area.
One-by-one residents near the intersection of 10th street and Portertown Road spoke in front of city council to argue that more time was needed.
Council member, Larry Spell did put forth a motion to allow more time for residents to discuss concerned with the developer, but that motion was ruled dead.
The decision left some happy and the next step is for W.L.A. Enterprises to develop a business plan to be used in the commercial area.
