Historic Site Draws Skepticism

A recent proposal to add roads near the GEMC store have met with an unexpected problem. A seedy motel (link) next to the property has been designated a historic site, and is protected.

Developers have contacted the original architect, Lane Shippe, who designed the run down building, but has no claim to the property.

“Lane’s got nothing to do with that site,” explained the developer, “but we’re hoping to lure the owner into replacing the hotel with one of Lane’s excellent townhouses,(link)” said a lawyer for the development company.
