Another project on the 52-acre parcel, originally owned by the Gumpert family, will be a senior community of Bonaventure. Other businesses are proposed as well. Powell asked BANA members what type of services they would like to see at the shopping area. A bank, cafe, good restaurants and a mailing center were among the ideas.
Powell said Fred Meyer has a number of other new stores being developed across the country. The firm will not open a store if the road work is incomplete. The new building will be a Silver LEED certified structure
