Mayor Promises 'Surprise' at Corner of Drake and Pearl
Old service station site will be put to use again
There are plans in the works to revitalize the site of a former service station at the corner of Pearl and Drake roads, Mayor Tom Perciak said.
Perciak, delivering his State of the City address Tuesday, said he couldn't yet get into specifics, but said the city will soon have "some great news" to share.
"You'll be surprised," he told the crowd.
His remarks came during a question-and-answer session, when someone in the audience asked about cleaning up the site of the former gas station, which has sat idle for some time.
It is often difficult to build on a gas station site because of the environmental clean-up costs.
"I think that is going to take care of itself," Perciak said.
