Tyler Comstock, Project Engineer with American Structurepoint, Inc, presented the Town Planning Board with plans for the Shelby Materials Ready Mix Concrete Plant.

The plant will be built on 10 acres behind the proposed Giving Hope (30 acre) development off CR W 650 S on the far south side of Lapel.

The Plans will be reviewed by the Building Inspector, the project is still in the development phase although the Planning Board did give approval for dirt to be moved and a temporary road built. Further development will require planning approval.

The Planning Board is now responsible for assigning addresses within Lapel, previously this was done by the Post Office.

The board has assigned the Giving Hope development the address of 9400 W 650 S and the Shelby Materials development the address 9302 W 650 S. Although considered in the Town of Lapel the mailing address will be Pendleton.
