Cherry Valley Fleet Farm project delayed until Spring 2020

CHERRY VALLEY (WREX) — Residents in Cherry Valley will have to wait a little bit longer for a new store.

Jim Claeyssen, Village President of Cherry Valley, tells 13 WREX the company has put the project on hold.

Claeyssen says the village was planning on starting road construction this summer on S. Bell School Rd and Charles St. in anticipation of a new Fleet Farm store, but then the company put the project on hold.

Claeyssen says the village has secured all the needed properties and right of ways to build out the S. Bell School Road and Charles St. road project to accommodate a major development onto the proposed 22-acre site.

Additional discussions with Fleet Farm and the village are anticipated later this year

Claeyseen says he’s hopeful the project will resume in the Spring of 2020.
