There are several challenges to be overcome before the Athol Shopping Center is a reality. First, there is no water to the property, nor a sewer system. Access to Hwy 54 is dependent on ITD deeding an access permit to the property.
Also, Athol must annex the land, plus change the zoning.
As to a Super One anchoring the project, Ron McIntyre told me yesterday that if the hurdles are jumped and the project becomes real, then Super One would be interested in taking a look at it.
Updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
