Hobby Lobby Prep

5112

Legacy Construction has begun demolition of the barn, above, and site work at the Hobby Lobby location on Keyser Avenue. A home at the site will also be demolished. The home décor and craft based store will be located between Blanchard-St. Denis Funeral Home and Ivan Smith Furniture. An excavator (Track Hoe) will be used to start clearing the property of any trees or structures in the way. City Chief of Staff Edd Lee explained the survey stakes shown in the lower photo. He said they are for one of two things. “The City had to get an area surveyed so that we could relocate the utilities, because as they are currently located they will interfere with the new building, or it could be simply a survey for the property boundary for the new store as part of the purchase of the land.” Photos by Hannah Richardson
