Some neighbors are already signing petitions to keep Walmart from moving into an empty lot on the north side.
Officials say it's already zoned commercial and it's just been a matter of time before something moves in.
"Retailers are interested in the north side of Evansville and that's a good sign that there's a lot of growth on the north side," says Kiefer. "Obviously if you drive up Green River Road you'll see a lot of new residential subdivisions. It's not surprising to me that Walmart wanted to be on the north side, with the new high school, the new middle school, with all the new residential subdivisions, they want to be able to capture that market."
