New Developments in Lamar

Several buildings in Lamar have been purchased, or are about to be bought for future development. (See Pictures Below)

Leandra’s Restaurant, closed for almost three years, recently received a white-wash paint job along North Main Street in town.  There’s been some discussion that the Belle Starr building, once a consignment store over a decade ago, is on tap for development.  The easily spotted blue building is along East Hickory Street, in back of the former Ed’s Liquors/5-E Liquors which was purchased by Corey and Monica Daniels, and should soon be reopening once alterations are complete.  The Daniels told the Lamar city council recently, improvements will also be made to the  living quarters over the liquor store. Carami’s Restaurant on East Olive has been closed for almost a year, but has undergone some changes, as a window sign has announced it’s going to re-open as The Sale Barn, a consignment store.

Performance Plus, which was gutted by fire last year, is making a comeback at its former location.  A new frame is being built on its former site, on the corner of West Maple Street and North 5th.

More construction is taking place at the Train Depot in town.  Krischie Construction out of Longmont has been at work the past couple of weeks, digging out the former platform between the depot and the train tracks.  A concrete replacement will run the length of the safety fence along the Welcome Center, east along the back-end of the Enchanted Forest.  A company employee said the work should take two months to complete.
