BELTON - Belton issued an unusually high number of building permits in April — 335, to be exact. Usually, the number of permits issued each month is in the single digits. However, the number of April’s permits exceeded the number for all of 2013.

Most of the permits — for repairs totaling about $3.5 million — were for roof repairs, replacements and other damage following the March 28 hailstorm that pounded the area, said Laura Livingston, the city’s planning clerk.

The city also issued permits for two much larger projects than roof repairs: an assisted-living center in North Belton will be expanding, and a larger Valero convenience store will be built on the site of a former one at the East Loop. The area will also have a new drug store at the intersection of Lake Rd. and N. Main St.

The Stony Brook center for seniors, at 500 River Fair Blvd., will be adding 14,853 sf onto the existing facility. The old Valero building has already been torn down, and construction on the new, larger building has begun.

A completely new CVS drug store will be built at 2849 N. Main St. that will be about 13,225 sf.
