Baiting the hook for redevelopment in Palmetto

January 11, 2014 

Palmetto demolished the dilapidated old bait shop at the foot of the Green Bridge this week with hopes of attracting a new business. This prime riverside spot affords high visibility from traffic on Business Route 41.

We hope this vacant land doesn't sit idle for years like the parcel directly across Riverside Drive, where a gas station once stood. Both spots need entrepreneurs to come in with great ideas for development.
