Making concrete progress

Mike Delpierre on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, cuts through a cinder block that will be a corner piece for the flower bed at The Local Station, 1508 Adams Ave., La Grande. The site was once home to a Texaco gas station. Developers Gust and Karin Tsiatsos are changing the property into a space for boutique ice cream, coffee and mercantile shops as well as public meeting areas. Gust Tsiatsos has said they want to create a place where tourists and locals can do more than just buy coffee. The La Grande Urban Renewal Agency in 2020 approved $64,200 in funds for the project, which has a total cost north of $400,000.
