Walmart set to move forward with Oroville superstore

Oroville city officials say they expect Walmart to apply for its first building permits for the long-awaited "super store" within the next 60 days.

A city spokesman told Action News Now that after nearly six years, legal battle between a group of Oroville residents and city hall over plans to build the new 200,000 square foot super store is finally over. A group called "Friends of Oroville" sued the city in 2009 after city officials approved plans for the new store on Cal Oak Road and Feather River Boulevard in south Oroville.

The group argued the store would negatively impact traffic and air quality, among other concerns, but their battle was lost.

The new store, once it's built, will replace the existing Walmart of Oro Dam Boulevard.
