SUISUN CITY - The Fairfield Planning Commission's decision Wednesday against allowing Wal-Mart Supercenter in Mission Village hasn't affected the mega-retailers' plans to build a supercenter in Suisun City.

"No effect. None at all," said Wal-Mart spokesman Kevin Loscotoff of the plans for Suisun City. "We continue to move forward with the project in Suisun City."

Suisun City planners are preparing a draft environmental report on how the proposed 230,000-square-foot store will affect the area around the 20-acre site bordered by Highway 12 and Walters Road.

Nearby residents who oppose the store have organized and plan to lobby against the proposal when it reaches Suisun City's planning commission next spring.
