Lake Worth changes land use for vacant site

8:27 p.m Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017 Local

The vacant 507 South G Street has a new life.

City Commissioners at tonight’s meeting unanimously changed the site’s land map use, which will allow Maegher Corp. to renovate and redevelop the site, located on the south side of 5th Avenue South between South G Street and the Florida East Coast Railway.

There was no discussion.

Maegher is under contract to buy the site for about $800,000.

The company sells gas and plumbing supplies and has been in Lake Worth for 32 years. The city said the company wants to take the property and use it for wholesale/retail distribution and warehouse uses.

“The city changed land uses and right now it’s zoned for mixed uses, which requires residences,” John Maher, Maegher’s vice president, told The Palm Beach Post last week. “We’re looking to use the site as a commercial use.”

Now it can.
