SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Residents who oppose a proposed new Walmart store in Sioux Falls have submitted petitions seeking a public vote next April on the rezoning of land to accommodate the supercenter.

The Save Our Neighborhood group submitted about 6,300 signatures — more than the 5,100 needed to refer the City Council’s decision to rezone about 40 acres of land from agricultural use to commercial use.

City Clerk Lorie Hogstad’s office is certifying whether there are enough valid signatures. Walmart has until 5 p.m. Monday to contest the petitions. Hogstad tells the Argus Leader newspaper (http://argusne.ws/18uBrxy ) that Walmart officials have informed her they plan to do so.

Walmart Stores Inc. spokeswoman Delia Garcia says the company is “carefully reviewing” the petition signatures.
