Dirt moving begins in preparation for planned Microtel on Canton Rd.

FPS staff report

Rick Fulton, a heavy equipment operator for Kent’s Excavating Services of Seville, OH, spent Tuesday morning “massaging” the dirt in preparation

Base work has begun at the site of a planned Microtel Inn and Suites along Canton Rd. within the Carrollton corporation limit.

The Carrollton village Zoning Board of Appeals granted a conditional use request Jan. 28 allowing a hotel to be constructed on the lot which housed the former Huebner Car Lot.  The two lots along the back portion of Daringer Ave. are zoned RS-1 (residential single family) and can be used for a parking lot and drive aisle once the conditional use was granted.

Kent’s Excavating Services, Inc. of Seville is doing the site preparation and constructing the pad where the building will be located. 

Rick Fulton, a heavy equipment operator with the excavating company, told The FPS additional employees will arrive later this week and begin removing excess dirt which has been collected in large piles from the site.

In January, Robert Moosally, director of construction management for Moosally Construction of Wexford, PA, said plans included a three-story facility with 81 suites. 

The construction area totals about 2.2 acres.
