Dale Hardware has submitted plans to expand its Centerville district store. I haven’t seen the proposal, but I’m told the butt of a new garden center would be located approximately where city leaders had hoped to build a new road connecting Fremont Boulevard and Post Street.
It appears the store doesn’t support the new road, which is a key part of the city’s plans to redevelop the nearby 6.6-acre vacant lot at Fremont Boulevard and Thornton Avenue.
The road, which is to cut accross the vacant lot and lead to the hardware store, is slated to have storefronts and housing — not the back end of a garden center.
