Ground Breaking Changes

The field next to Western University's Lebanon campus has seen better days. Maybe I should just say more peaceful days, because hopefully the tearing-up occurring now in the field will bring about great things for this community.

The field is now home to a Central Willamette Credit Union and construction site for a 16-bed dialysis center.

The construction doesn't end there. In our neck of the field, there's construction on additional Cascade Ridge office buildings with "luxury" apartments above those offices.

And across the street from the bank, next to the elementary school where there used to be another peaceful field, there are a multitude (really too many to be practical) of dump trucks and digger machines ready to create the foundation for the new veteran's home.

Lebanon is growing in leaps and bounds. Now we just need a franchise sit-down restaurant. Any takers?
