RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Powhatan County will find out if they'll see the county's first Walmart Monday.

Last month, the Powhatan Planning Board approved the retail chain's proposal to build in the area.

The planning board meeting was packed then, and members expect to see the same sized crowd Monday night.

They are expected to voice their opinions on the possible new store. The plan is to build the Walmart on a 34 acre open lot on Route 60.

Supporters and opponents alike haven't been shy to say how they felt about it.

"I think that it would be very desirable to bring jobs, the tax revenue into the county. So I'm requesting that you accept this application," said Wendy Eiling.

"We have actually 800 signatures on a petition against it. We found 100 more," said Greg Ohme.

Monday night's Board of Supervisors meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the Powhatan High School auditorium, at 1800 Judes Ferry Road.
