Beauty shop, video store, more planned for Waverly railroad land
Two more businesses plan to construct and open shop in the near future on railroad land being purchased.
Hirsch Investments plans to open a multiple business center that will offer a beauty and tanning salon, a video store, office suites, and a coffee/pizza/ice cream restaurant.
The complex will feature separate buildings, and not a mini-mall style arrangement.
The plans are to begin work this fall, with the remainder of construction being done in the spring.
Hirsch is buying six lots on block two, with two being cash and the remainder being a one year contract for deed at seven percent interest.
Following negotiations with the railroad land committee, a final price of $96,000, with a rebate of $2,000 per lot if the building if the project is completed within the one-year time frame except for lot four, which contains an easement for a sewer force main and will not be built on.
Sewer and water charges were negotiated to be a maximum of $10,000 by the land committee. The list price of the land was $126,400.
Another business in the process of buying railroad land is a carpet store/interior decorating business owned by Sandy Gardener and Tim Steven.
The land purchase enroaches on the city's electronic sign, which caused the council to discuss how it wanted to control access to the sign,owning the property is on, and obtaining an easement to service it.
