I have noticed at least a couple of places in our fair city that are undergoing major construction changes.
This location on south Glenstone used to have a large L-shaped strip mall that was mostly empty. It has now been leveled and Walmart is putting in a grocery store.
As I understand it, this will be smaller that a usual Walmart or Super Center. This can only mean much, much more traffic at Bennett and Glenstone, the next intersection south. Bennett happens to be part of my morning route and is also used by many other commuters going to and from work. I am always glad for the jobs that come to this area, but there is always a trade-off.
Just south of the Walmart location is a Brown Derby business that I visited when it was a Mr. Swiss [!] back in the early 70s. I like to view its architecture and remember those days.
The other change in the local landscape is on Chestnut east of Glenstone, just south of the old Lily Tulip plant, which has undergone its own change the past decades.
This location used to be covered with trees. Jan and I have seen foxes in the area over the past years. No more. This change really hurt. We enjoyed the small tract of trees and underbrush. Just knowing it was there somehow helped.
