Giant-To-Go Coming in Montgomeryville
A Giant-to-Go could be coming in Montgomery Township. That's a convenience store with gasoline pumps operated by Giant Food Stores. The township supervisors Monday night granted conditional use approval for fuel sales at the one proposed in the vacant retail strip center adjacent the old Schoolhouse Fabric Store on Bethlehem Pike near Five Points. It would measure 5,000 square feet and have ten gasoline filling stations. The vacant building currently on the 2.25 acre site would be demolished as part of its redevelopment. The project must still get land development approval from the township supervisors before construction can begin.
Architectural Contracts Approved in Lansdale
Lansdale Borough Council Wednesday night approved contracts with the architect that will design the new municipal complex on Vine Street as well as draw up plans for finishing rennovations at the old Performing Arts Center on West Main Street. Spiezle Architectural Group also assessed borough facilities last year and concluded the police station needs alot more room and Borough Hall is in an extreme state of disrepair. Borough Council members Jack Hansen and Rich DiGregorio voted against approval of the contracts because they were not put out for bid. Borough Council also voted to apply for a $500,000 state grant that would be used for rennovations at the old Performing Arts Center. A contract was also approved for the consultant that will develop programming and a business plan for the Community Arts and Cultural Center that is replacing the old Performing Arts Center.
