Approximately 40+ acres are being annexed to the town of Laurel soon, if not already. The land is prime commercial land beside the former Bargain Bills and Oneal’s Antique store.
The town proudly boast it has doubled its size in the last decade, however not one piece of land has been developed. A developer from PA promised to build 3000 homes and had land annexed in back of Tyndalls Pools and across the highway; he is involved in an investigation by the IRS, so kiss that one goodbye.
David Horsey and Company was going to develop a combination commercial, housing, and recreational complex; a court injunction by a few property owners killed that project.
I have no idea where the person purchasing the land mentioned above has in mind, but with sewer and water ready to break ground, their might be some hope he can develop something; lets hope something Laurel can be proud of.
Meanwhile the new school complex continues with notably progress; hope we have enough students willing to attend LHS to fill the building.
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for Laurel’s future; just hope it’s not a freight train coming.
