A piece of land that was recently a 10-acre hay field is now being turned into one of the biggest commercial areas in Vinton County's history.

Construction crews from Shelly and Sands were busy Thursday afternoon, Nov. 2, roughing out the new entrance to the Cherry Lane Retail Development off U.S. Route 50 in west McArthur. The crews also were replacing the sidewalk which had to be temporarily removed.

The new access road will have a big cut-off from U.S. Route 50 and fire hydrants have been placed along the course back into the development area. Developer Emmett Conway, Jr. is planning to have several different types of complementing businesses in the development.

One lot was sold to Campbell's Market and the new grocery store is now open. Conway has also recently sold a lot to the University of Rio Grande's Community College Board and there are three other lots available for sale which are designed for light retail businesses. The McArthur Board of Public Affairs has had water lines installed and street lights will go up at some point. The addition of the Rio Grande campus should be a boost to the businesses in the area.

The development is also pleasing to McArthur Mayor Kim Wortman who spoke recently to The Telegram about the Cherry Lane Development progress.

"We are a small village, but we are continuing to make progress," the mayor stated. "The food desert days are over and some business people, such as Mr. Conway, have stepped up and helped the village move forward."

As for the future, Conway has not announced if he has finalized any other sale of property, but has stated he wants a full development. He also at some future point plans to develop a housing subdivision near the retail development. He will be discussing utility hookups with the McArthur village government in the future.
