People in Lompoc will have to wait to find out if the proposed Walmart expansion project will move forward.
It was standing room only at City Hall as the Planning Commission reviewed the project's Final Environmental Impact Report and Development Plan.
If approved the project would add more than 41,000 square feet of retail space to the store on West Central Avenue.
Walmart says it will use the space to make room for a larger selection of groceries.
Close to 50 people voiced their opinions during public comment Wednesday night, and that is why the commission had to continue Wednesday's hearing.
Some residents worry the Supercenter will force local shops to close their doors.
Still others say development is a good thing.
The commission says it will notify the public once a continuation date is chosen.
