What Now?

March 30th, 2012 at Fri, 30th, 2012 at 4:27 pm by Rick Bergum

Well I see that the old rental building on the corner of 164th and Kent-Kangley by the Covington library is finally gone.  Years ago that was just an empty field.  Then the rental building was built and it housed a few different businesses before becoming a rental place.  Eventually that emptied out too.

Now the lot is just dirt.  I’m wondering what the plan is.  Another restaurant?  A gas station?  Something else?  I think it would be nice to have a little more upscale restaurant there like an Olive Garden or a fish eatery.  Something outside the realm of “fast food” which Covington has a lot of already.  I’ll keep my eyes peeled and see if I find out anything.  We might be surprised but then again the lot may stay empty for years.

I've lived in Covington for over 50 years. I've seen a lot of changes in Covington during that time and hope to share a few of these periodically. I enjoy writing and also write a blog for those in the custodial field. (The link is included on this blog page.) You can also find information on Facebook under the name Custodial Soupçon.
