HEBER CITY, Utah (AP) -- Heber City may soon keep big box stores from being built.

The Heber City Planning Commission sent a recommendation to limit the size of retail stores to 75-thousand square feet.

If the City Council adopts the recommendation, it would halt some big box development. In particular, it would keep a Wal-Mart Super Center from coming to Heber City.

Super Centers are 120-thousand square feet and larger.

The City Council plans to hold a public hearing on the proposal June 6th. The city's moratorium on big box development expires June 15th.
