Union — Two citizens were in attendance at a public hearing July 10 regarding proposed renovations to an existing building at 1924 Heald Highway in Union.

The Planning Board voted 5-0 to approve the project.

The building will become a commercial complex and bus garage.

"There will be some minor inside work needed to establish work spaces, but it is
premature to determining who will do the work and to what extent," according to Code Enforcement Officer Grant Watmough.

According to Watmough, the existing building is about 6,800 square feet, and the estimated cost to renovate will be approximately $50,000.

The commercial complex will be used for bus maintenance and repair, bus parking, Luce Transportation offices, continue to rent existing parts, parking for commercial trucks, auto sales, some retail sales, and auto detail shop/auto body.
