U-Haul seeks to convert vacant Walmart on Pass Road

U-Haul has approached the city with an idea to convert the former Walmart on Pass Road into a retail outlet and interior storage facility for boats, RVs and individual storage units.

The proposal had its first airing last week before the city’s Development Review Committee, a multi-departmental city body that looks at various issues of new construction.

The U-Haul proposal would use the entire Walmart site and the 118,000-square-foot building, which has been vacant since Walmart opened a new supercenter on C.T. Switzer Drive.
