Worcester County has given its nod to plans for water and sewer capacity for the Pines Plaza Center development.
Local officials will be soliciting proposals for a new connection to be built under route 589 with a public information meeting to be held today at the Ocean Pines library.
The $2.9 million project would connect the development with the Ocean Pines sewer district.
If approved work would begin later this year and is expected to be completed by the spring of next year.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the shopping center’s private sewage system broke down about 18 months ago with the site management coming to the County for help.
