E-mail sent to Shirley Frick - Request from Commissioner Gigi Arntzen and response from Economic Development Manager Teresa Brydon
I noticed that the Publix at Missouri and Rosery closed as of December 24. Do we have any information on plans for that shopping center? At one time, I heard that Publix was moving to the other end of the center and perhaps Kohl's was coming in.

At this time there are no new plans for the Midway Plaza Shopping Center - located near the intersection of Rosery and Missouri. I have spoken with the property owners and I have information on the location to help "pitch" the product.
At one time there was talk about Kohl's building at the vacant land once home to Builders Square - but there has not been any recent activity on that site.
I do not believe that Publix will be constructing a new store in the Plaza since they have redone an Albertsons to the north and it has recently opened.
The good news is that we designated this area a Brownfield and with that there are opportunities for retailers to receive incentives for locating to these redevelopment areas. Also, we are in the process of conducting a complete inventory on the commercial properties that are in this area and will be creating a marketing program to help "promote" the redevelopment of this area.
