Wal-Mart submits permit application


Staff Writer

Wal-Mart is on track to break ground this summer and begin construction of a 92,000 square-foot super center at the corner of Alpha Drive and Aspen Village Drive on the west side of Pagosa Springs, with an eye on a grand opening in the spring of 2014.

“Wal-Mart has submitted a building permit application,” town planner James Dickhoff confirmed on Monday, “so we are in the plan review stage at this point. We are reviewing their building permit plans for compliance with the 2006 International Building Code and the town’s Land Use Development Code. That’s the typical process for any plans that we get in. We review it for compliance, if any corrections are needed we request those corrections, they send revisions, we review those revisions and if everything is up to speed then we issue a permit.”
