Wal-Mart still is revising its plans for a new supercenter at Lockport Mall, said Mia Masten, company spokeswoman.

The retailing giant withdrew its original plan Sept. 23 after the town Planning Board objected to several details, especially the 50-foot distance proposed between the back of the store and a 10-foot wall bordering back yards of homes on Badger Drive.

That plan would have required a variance, since the required setback distance is 100 feet. The mall, most of which Wal-Mart plans to demolish, is 110 feet from the wall.

At the time, Wal-Mart representatives said they would submit a new plan in a month, but Eugene Nenni, the town's senior building inspector, said Friday that nothing had arrived.

Masten said she had no date for submitting the revised plan.
