It looks like a Wal-Mart super center could finally be coming to Woodland Park.
City council members voted in favor of adding a Super Wal-Mart inside city limits. They met late into the night and finally came to a decision.
Much of the meeting put Wal-Mart representatives in the hot seat, answering council's questions on topics like economic impact and traffic issues.
The seven-member panel finally passed the Wal-Mart application; 5 in favor, 2 against.
Mayor Gary Cramer says it's one of the biggest decisions the city's ever made.
"It's an emotional issue. Any time the emotions run this high on a decision such as this, you're going to find yourself on the hot seat."
"Wal-Mart is happy with the decision because after all the hours of investigation and focus on the issue, the right decision was made," said Wal-Mart representative Mike Ciletti.
