Permit issued for Walmart gas station

By Jerry Creel, Community Development Director

This week in community development, the building division issued a building permit for the Walmart Gas Station to be located on Popp’s Ferry Road in front of the proposed Walmart Neighborhood Market, which was permitted last week. The new Market and Gas Station are scheduled to be completed in March 2016.

Also this week, permits were issued to Edgewater Mall for the relocation of Master Cuts. The relocation is necessary to accommodate the proposed 16, 000 sq. ft. Encore Shoe Store that will be constructed in the former locations of Piccadilly’s, Mastercut’s, Puzzles, and Epitome. Epitome, a long time tenant of the mall (40 Years) will be relocated closer to the Southern Mall Entrance. Subcontractor permits were issued this week, for Boyd Gaming for the renovations to 54 suites, and for 2 new single family houses. Build out plans were received and reviewed this week for a new $1 million dollar Petco Store to be located in the Shoppes at Popp’s Ferry Shopping Center on Pass Road.
