Site preparation has begun at the Emerald Bluff Subdivision – Third Addition located adjacent to the Highway 72 Bypass just northeast of the Highway 72 East roundabout.
Street and utility infrastructure work is forthcoming with the bidding process underway, according to Madison County Presiding Commissioner Bob Mooney.
According to an outline of project plans, a new building to house the Madison County Ambulance District will be constructed on lot one. The lot lies in the northwest section of the subdivision which contains four lots.
“This is a project which will greatly serve the people of Madison County when it is complete,” Mooney said.
There will also be a new street addition which has been named River Bluff Drive. It will run the length of the plat beginning at Middy Drive off of Highway 72 Bypass. The street will serve the new Madison County Ambulance District upon completion.
Alan Berry of A.B.-CAD Service, Inc. completed the site preparation work and these improvements will go toward the new ambulance facility, as well. Bey-Dorf was the previous owner of lot one.
Before the actual work begins the site plan will require approval of the City of Fredericktown. The building permits can be issued once the site storm water plan receives city approval, in keeping with municipal code. This site is zoned C-2 or general commercial which means it is approved for multiple-family dwellings or non-residential buildings.
