Orange supervisors OK Wilderness Walmart

Voting in the wee hours Tuesday morning, the Orange County Board of Supervisors has approved the Walmart Supercenter proposed at the Wilderness battlefield.

The five-member board’s vote was 4-1, with Supervisor Teri Pace opposed to the development. Pace represents the district in which the project was proposed.
