"We have not determined the exact site yet, but we're looking inthat vicinity," Martin told GlobeSt.com. The size of the facilityhas not yet been determined, he said, but there are plans for whatwould go in it. Martin said the City would like to feature achild-care center that's always open, a drugstore and other retailshopping stores.

"We'd also like to have a place where people could come paytheir utility bills, and a park and ride facility where people canpark their cars and take a bus to anywhere in the city," Martinsays. "We're trying to make the resident's daily lives easier."

The child-care center would be offered to busy commuters whodon't have time to make multiple stops."Here, parents will be ableto just come in and drop off children, and take a bus to theirdestination," Martin says, adding that the City will break groundon the project by the end of the year.
