Sioux Falls, SD (KELO-AM) A well-financed group has formed to push for a new Walmart Supercenter near 85th and Minnesota in Sioux Falls.

Walmart has donated $250,000 to 'Building A Better Sioux Falls' says group spokesman Craig Dewey.

Dewey says the project will mean  more tax revenue, road improvements and more jobs for the community.

He says the new group is made up of local businesses, community leaders and residents and the purpose is to education the voters about the benefits of a new Walmart on the Southside.

Critics of the project say that it is not the right thing for a residential area.

The voters will decide in a referendum April 8th.
