City still waiting on Walmart’s
application for Arvada Plaza location

The revitalization of the Arvada Plaza with a proposed Walmart is not a done deal yet.

As of Feb. 20, Walmart had not filed an application with the city of Arvada, the first step all businesses must take before moving in to the city.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. hosted a public meeting Jan. 16 to inform the public of its interest in the property and preliminary designs.

”There is no indication that they’re not going to file, but there is not a set time frame they have to file by,” said Arvada Communications Manager Wendy Forbes.

The Arvada Press will continue to provide updates about the proposed project as its progresses.
