Cease And Desist Order Placed On Former Matthews Motors Property

January 26, 2009

A cease and desist order has been placed on the former Matthews Motors property at Edloe near University – the property advertised now as soon becoming Matthews Market.


Although writing on the building advertises that the grocery store in development by Jim Reid will open in April, the redevelopment has yet to pass a review by the Zoning and Planning Commission, or be presented to council.


Reid says the proposed grocery and “neighborhood gathering place” would fill a need created by the closure of JMH, a block north of the new location. JMH closed a year and a half after co-owner Jim Reid sold his half of the business to his partner.


After-hour calls to city officials have not yet been returned. InstantnewsWestU.com will provide an update as soon as more information is available.
