Property owner has no plans to sell
Articles in the news media have informed me that the city of Oak Harbor plans to displace Pioneer Automotive so that it can site a sewer treatment plant on Pioneer Way. (Former location of Frontier Chevrolet-Pontiac.) No one from the city has contacted the owner, Redneck Properties LLC. The property is not for sale.
While private industry would determine what property may be available before deciding on a major construction project, government can simply condemn what ever property it takes a fancy to. However, it must pay the market value, and must pay to relocate a business it displaces.
Pioneer Automotive plans to stay right where it is. But if it ultimately is displaced by government it plans to provide excellent service and local jobs in a new location. Pioneer Automotive occupies a prime downtown location; please do not let the unsolicited sewer treatment selection discourage your patronage.
