Photo: Cherrydale gets its sidewalk back

It still needs a little work, but the sidewalk in front of the under construction Bromptons at Cherrydale condominium is open for pedestrians, after a fence that has surrounded the property for several years has come down.

Work has progressed rapidly on the 22-unit condominium building since last year, when the county took action against developer Ed Peete Companies for insufficient work on the project. The balconies on the front of the building have now been installed, and the fence is now blocking only a small portion of the sidewalk near a utility pole.

Work is supposed to be complete by January, according to a settlement agreement, and residents could be moving in shortly after that.
