Work is continuing along County Road 21 in Haliburton to bring a retail store, convenience store and gas station, and fast food restaurant to 10 Hops Drive.

Dysart et al planner, Jeff Iles, said council conditionally approved the development on Oct. 27, 2020.

He added it proceeded through the public planning process in December 2020. Minor amendments to the site plan agreement were made in August 2022, after the property was sold.

Dysart paperwork indicates the owner as of Aug. 23, 2022 is the Sunray Group/Hops Drive Inc. They have not returned several Highlander calls. The previous owner was listed as Marnac Management Corp.

Plans include a 10,000 sq. ft. retail building, 1,600 sq. ft. convenience store, 1,600 sq. ft. fast food restaurant with a takeout window, and three gas pumps.

Architectural drawings show a Dollarama sign, but The Highlander has not been able to confirm who the proposed retailers are.
