“What Should Go Here” is a regular feature in our site where we ask community members for ideas or suggestions on what businesses should move to empty commercial spaces in Ballwin and Ellisville.
At the latest meeting of the planning and zoning commission, a majority of those in the public were against the Walmart development.
A show of hands poll conducted by commission member Chris Turner during that meeting showed that, of those in attendance, six property owners were in favor of the Walmart project and 28 against it.

During the meeting, Rick G. Rohlfin, of BFA Consultants and Engineers, who was representing Walmart, said he believed the property was well suited for the Walmart development and reminded residents that no other business had applied or showed an interest for the space.
What else should go here if not a Walmart? Or is a Walmart the most appropriate business to go in that space? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section.
