Wal-Mart says it's not giving up on plan to build store in Chanhassen

The city's Planning Commission voted 7-0 to reject the retailer's proposal after hundreds of people showed up to speak out against the plan. Commissioners say the store hasn't addressed concerns about traffic, parking and a nearby wetland. The company says it will address those issues before the City Council votes later this month.
