BROOKINGS – With the rush of commercial activity in the Lowe’s area in northeast Brookings, many residents are asking, “What’s going on with ‘the big box’ on the other side of the Interstate?”
“Glad you asked,” said City Manager Jeff Weldon, but he’s still unable to give any details as to who might be interested in the state Department of Transportation property the city purchased in late November.
“There is nothing new to report on the big box at this point,” Weldon said in an email to the Register Monday. “Our developers are working with the DOT on access points into the site as part of the Highway 14 improvement project. In the meantime, the big box and our developers are marketing for other prospects but nothing definite yet. Should be a few more months yet.”For the complete article see the 03-04-2014 issue.
