Wegmans appears ready to start construction of its Columbia supermarket -- at least according to the building permit that Wegmans applied for on June 30, 2009.
An employee of Wegmans Construction in Rochester applied to build a temporary construction trailer at 8895 McGaw Road. That is the site across from Apple Ford where Wegmans has been talking about a new store since at least 2006. This confirms June 2009 reports on the Tales of Two Cities blog that the company was moving forward and thought it had ended legal challenges.
You can check application B09001570 yourself at the Howard County Web site. Just search for all permits on McGaw Road in June 2009.
