With sewer and water construction supposed to begin at the end of the year to bring service to Rt 9 and U.S. 13 there is a lot os talk about what is going on the highway.
We understand Rite-Aid has given up their option to purchase and build on the corner opposite Royal Farms, which has delayed their building project since DelDOT has asked them to redraw their entrance permit since Rite-Aid has given up the ship, I think a huge mistake because;
Another major drug chain is talking to two businesses to build along U.S. 13. The site has to be annexed to bring sewer and water.
Further south an offer has been made by Royal Farms to build another store on the north bound lane. That land cannot be annexed, but the company is satisfied to have septic.
The former Exxon station of Rt 9 has indicated they would be willing to annex so they could expand that business and across is the flea market who would like to change their operation.
The town has money to provide these services; the question is will they? If they do their could be a lot of action in Laurel in 2012, or it could be business as usual.
