A business development is planned for a vacant lot on the corner of Highway K and Addison Road in the town of Addison.

Dale and Margaret Flowers plan to build a 4,800square-foot building, parking lot and stormwater retention pond on their 4.7-acre parcel, according to documents submitted to Washington County.

This week the county’s Land Conservation Committee authorized a conditional use permit for the project. The permit will allow the Flowers to grade and fill the land, county Land Resources Manager Phil Gaudet said.

Dale Flowers told the Daily News he already had permits from the town and the state’s Department of Natural Resources for the commercial project. He declined to say what business he would have, but did say it would take about a year before he was ready to announce it.

The county approved a conditional use permit in 2010 for that property “for a very similar project,” Planning and Parks Department Administrator Jay Shambeau said. “That permit has expired.”

The department had no objection to the permit request, Shambeau said.
