The Ridge Community Church, which had hoped to build a church on Layton Avenue, will ask the Greenfield Plan Commission tonight for conceptual approval of a plan to convert part of the Walmart store instead.
When a last-minute hitch in February derailed church plans to build in the 9500/9700 block of Layton Avenue, church officials said they would seek another location in Greenfield. They eyed the soon-to-be-vacated Walmart building at 4500 S. 108th St.
Walmart will move into its new super store, now under construction next door, this fall.
The church, which would purchase the entire building. would use about 60,000 square feet of the old 110,000-square-foot Walmart store. The remaining 50,000 square feet would be leased for commercial use.
The church needs a rezoning and a change in the comprehensive land use plan. Public hearings would be needed for those requests. The Plan Commission is expected to schedule the hearings after the church presents its plans tonight.
