Clearwater town council has issued a development permit for a third structure in the new Clearwater Shopping Center under construction next to Highway 5.

A development permit for two other structures, the BuyLow grocery store now nearing completion, plus a second building next to it on which construction has begun, was issued earlier.

The principal tenant in the second building will be Pharmasave.

The third structure would be located between the roundabout and where the courthouse is now.

The building would be about 345 square meters (3,700 sq. ft.) in size.

Its principal tenant in the third building is to be Interior Savings Credit Union.

In keeping with the municipality’s development guidelines, the appearance of the new building will have a natural theme, with tan colors and canopies with wood and stone features.

The developer is being asked to give a $37,000 security deposit to guarantee that its site and landscape work is done as set out in its development permit.

The developer already has posted a $175,000 security deposit for Phase 1 of the project (the first two buildings).
