SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — Sioux Falls residents who oppose a proposed Wal-Mart in southern Sioux Falls are asking the city to hold off on issuing a building permit for the retailer.

The Argus Leader reports attorney Joel Arends filed a motion Friday on behalf of four nearby homeowners. The residents are requesting the court temporarily stop the city from moving forward with the permitting process for the retailer.

The Sioux Falls City Council rezoned about 40 acres of land from agricultural use to commercial for the Wal-Mart supercenter.

An opposition group collected signatures to have voters decide on the rezoning. In April, residents voted to support the rezoning for the store.

The residents want to stop the process while the court considers a suit they filed on the language of the ballot measure.
