The Reed City Council passed Resolution 2020-10 at their regular meeting creating a 2.5 acre Commercial Rehabilitation District for the new Ebels General Store to be built on the old Vic’s market site.
The 20,000+ square foot store recently completed all the Zoning requirements and is now eligible to apply for a tax abatement certificate under Act 210 of 2005.
Mayor Trevor Guiles and other Council members expressed their appreciation to Ebels at the meeting for choosing to build in Reed City knowing that the store will draw shoppers from a large area. Tom Ebels thanked the Council for their support and assisting the family in the approval process.
Some preliminary site work has been started but everyone agreed it would be nice to have a ceremonial ground breaking Thursday August 20th at 5pm to officially celebrate the start of the project.
A Reed City local business, Gerber Construction, was selected to be the General contractor for the project.
The public is invited to attend and the Ebels family, City Council representatives and Reed City area Chamber of Commerce officials will be participating in the ground breaking.
In the interest of safety, everyone attending the ceremony is asked to observe “social distancing”.
