There are several popular phrases for saying “it ain’t gonna happen.”
When Hell freezes over…When pigs fly…When they build the Lowe’s in South Burlington.
Now you can cross off that last one.
According to the WCAX website:
Lowe’s Home Improvement has received the green light to resume construction of a new store in South Burlington.
The home improvement company and The Conservation Law Foundation have reached a settlement, ending a long environmental battle.
Construction on the site off Shelburne Road was halted nearly two years ago in a legal and regulatory battle centering on storm water runoff pollution. It was noticed that the construction was polluting nearby Potash Brook.
But both sides announced Wednesday they have reached a deal, which includes making improvements to the current storm water pond.
Construction of the home improvement store will likely resume this summer. Lowe’s hopes to open the new store in 2008.
Wonders never cease.
