Memories of the Covington area and changes that have occurred as recalled by a native of the area for over forty years.
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.
