County Administrator J.L. “Jay” Stegmaier shared with the Board that the “county is starting to see increased commercial construction activity in the Route 10 corridor between the Courthouse area and Chester. A new Citizens Bank will open in March, and the El Patron Restaurant is relocating from the Chesterfield Meadows shopping center to a new freestanding building,” according to a report from the last Board of Supervisors meeting.
According to the clerk’s notes, “Mr. Stegmaier was pleased to report the completion of the Colony Village apartments on Jefferson Davis Highway. These units are located where an old hotel and trailer park used to sit, so the county continues to see progress in the revitalization of this area. The development contains upscale apartments and first-floor retail in a mixed-use urban village setting. The grand opening will be in March with the first phase of approximately 100 units.”
