City Council will hold a public hearing Thursday night to get feedback on modified plans to build Lubbock's fifth Wal-Mart at 114th and Quaker Avenue. 

Residents in the area told Planning and Zoning Commission members last month that they had concerns about noise, lights, and the size of the development, which has increased from 18 acres to 25.  

The president of the Orchard Park Homeowners Association submitted a list of conditions to the city on Wal-Mart's development. The conditions include: 

- A 12-foot-high barrier along the south side of 114th Street
- Landscaping must incorporate mature trees and other shrubbery
- Prohibition of overnight parking
- Freight delivery will take place on Quaker Avenue at the south end of the property

The Planning and Zoning commission recommended Council approve Wal-Mart's request, with changes the retailer's made to address neighborhood concerns.
