A map released by a Buy-Low Foods consultant to Clearwater town council on Tuesday shows the possible layout of a shopping centre proposed for the corner of Highway 5 and Park Drive. The new roundabout is at the top right. The grocery store shown in yellow on the left would be 25,000 sq. ft., compared to 18,000 sq. ft. of the existing Safety Mart (Buy-Low purchased Safety Mart late last year). Construction is to begin in the spring and be completed by December, council was told. The buildings shown in color also likely would be built, while those in outline only are tentative.
