(KSL News) -- Wal-Mart still wants to build in Centerville, but now there's one more obstacle to get through.

The fight over the proposed store has dragged out for months. Opponents say Wal-Mart will bring traffic, noise and crime. Proponents like the idea of the superstore's tax revenues, cheap prices and additional jobs.

Last night, the Centerville city planning commission approved new conditions. One is if Wal-Mart does build and then ever decides to close the store, it would not be allowed to leave the building vacant for competitive reasons.

The issue now goes before the city council.
