New construction, remodeling happening around Brookhaven
Brookhaven residents don’t have to look far to see business progress around town.
Anyone who has driven around town has noticed the progress being made on new buildings going up. With buildings being bought and torn down, there’s bound to be something new pop up.
On the east end of Brookway Boulevard, Hudgey’s Family Restaurant was a fixture for 50 years before being torn down. The new building rising in its place will be a Fast Pace Urgent Care Clinic.
On the west end of Brookway Boulevard, a former Fleet Morris Petroleum gas station was torn down after sitting vacant for years. The cleanup has not been completed and plans for the property have yet to be announced.
The property on the corner of North Second Street and Monticello Street will soon be serving fried chicken. The building previously served as a seafood market.
On the corner of South Railroad Avenue and East Court Street is the former Brookhaven Outreach Ministry building. Renovations are underway, but plans for the building have yet to be announced.
There are two properties being improved close to each other on the west end of Industrial Park Road. One of them is in front of the Lincoln County Health Department building.
That building will be the Reading Nook’s new location. The Reading Nook will move there from their current location on Schwem Avenue.
The other property is on Honey Creek Lane, where a building is going up not far from Kid’s Kingdom Park. This will be a home health office.
Anyone building a property within the city limits should contact City Building Inspector David Fearn. He can be reached at 601-823-5966.
