The development would also include an 18,000-square-foot shopping center.Ed Stout, director of developmental services, said the mobile home park now located on the property is being cleared for the shopping center. He said the site plans for the development have been approved by the Planning Commission.

Last week the City Council approved a conditional-use permit for the auto body and paint shop.
