HY-VEE appears to be on track for final approval Tuesday of plans to convert the former Kmart building at 2115 S. MacArthur Blvd. to a full-service supermarket and convenience store. The Springfield City Council is expected to vote on the project, which has had no serious opposition up to now.
The company, based in Des Moines, Iowa, still must complete the purchase of three parcels needed for the project. Hy-vee executives have indicated they would like to begin construction as soon as the site plan is approved and the properties are purchased.
