South Willow Street Walmart is one court decision away
A January ruling by the New Hampshire Supreme Court favored Walmart, which in December 2009 won Manchester Planning Board approval to build a 188,000-square-foot Supercenter at the shuttered Associated Grocers property on Gold Street.
Hannaford and other nearby companies filed two cases against Walmart, whose Supercenter would include a full-service supermarket.
One suit challenged the Planning Board decisions that allowed for the Walmart to move forward. The Planning Board required Walmart to make $3.5 million in improvements to nearby roads and convince the city to gate off the residential portions of Gold and Sewall streets.
That review likely will take place by the end of the year. At that point, the Supreme Court could decide it based upon the written arguments, as it did the earlier decision. Or it could schedule oral arguments.
He cautioned against assuming the high court will decide the case without oral arguments. Doing so would likely extend the time before a decision is made.
In the January decision that upheld the Planning Board approval, the Supreme Court unanimously said the record contains “an abundance of support” for the board’s decision.
