photo and comment by Bill Cleary

(December 19)The clearing of the site for Meadowbrook II is nearing completion. If the weather continues to be favorable it is possible that construction could begin in the spring.

Speaking of new construction. The Scarborough project on the grounds of the Holt Corporate Office building (the former Coast Guard property) is still a go according to sources. If you recall the incumbent council candidates announced several weeks before the November election that Scarborough was going to build townhouses on the grounds. The secret was where would Holt move his corporate offices?

Holt had a 99 year lease for the site and it seemed like it was just a pipe dream.

But here we are several weeks after the election and it appears the venture is still ago. Where will Holt put his corporate offices?

Well if my sources are correct Scarborough is supposely going to build Holt a new office building on the parking lot across from O'Hara's Tavern, on King Street. Stay tune, more information to come.
