(KSL TV) A proposal to build a Super Wal-Mart shopping center in a Utah County community is meeting with resistance.

At a meeting last night, protestors spoke out against a "big box" retailer moving into Cedar Hills.

Wal Mart wants to build a 158,000 square foot store in an empty lot. The property is zoned for commercial use, but not for a large store.

It would give the city much needed sales tax revenue, but protestors say the Wal-Mart would destroy their neighborhood's small town feel.

A final decision is not expected for several months.
