A site plan was submitted to the Village of Clemmons on Thursday, 3 September 2015 for a retail center at the southwest corner of Lewisville-Clemmons Road and South Peace Valley Road. The proposed development includes a 49,000 square feet supermarket that is rumored to be a Publix, an additional retail store, a bank, and two restaurants.

The Village of Clemmons Planning Board will hold a public hearing for the rezoning request at its meeting on Tuesday, 20 October 2015. The Village Council would consider the issue at its meeting on Monday, 9 November 2015.

Oh boy, even more concrete and traffic, and even less trees.

Correction: I incorrectly referred to South Peace Haven Road as South Peace Valley Road.

I would be curious to see the site plan with attention to preserving and maintaining greenery and careful planning for parking and traffic clow.

Clemmons Planning Board unanimously approved the rezoning request and site plan for the proposed development that could include Publix at Lewisville-Clemmons Road and South Peace Haven Road. The issue is projected to go before Clemmons Village Council in January with a public hearing.

Clemmons seems to have better zoning ordinances than many cities that size, in my observations.

Oh, I think I could challenge the sense of the village powers-that-be. After all, they accepted that very rococo clock and erected it in front of the village hall. I wonder how many accidents it has caused? The first time we approached it, the reaction was to tap the brakes and go "the hell...?" I know it was given to honor a local builder and funded by the family, but sweet baby peas, that thing is ugly.

Publix is a nice store; I've been to the one in Cary; but with a large Lowe's Foods down the road, the new Walmart grocery store, Harris Teeter at the Harper Road exit just to the west, and a Food Lion and smaller Lowe's Foods at the Bermuda Run exit, I question the necessity.

I've seen way, way worse.

Publix's entry into the Clemmons market could initiate a shift in participants. Stronger participants would remain and grow. Weaker participants would close stores and exit.

I agree that it's ugly, but most people hated the Eifel Tower when it was completed too...just sayin'. In 100 years that ugly clock may be considered iconic and beautiful.

There are actually two Food Lions...one near 421 and one at Kinnamon and South Stratford Rd. There is also a Lowe's in Lewisville, but you're talking about an area of at least 60,000 residents covering East Davie and Southwest Forsyth. I'm thinking it's large enough to support that many grocers, and I feel sure Publix has done their due diligence on the matter.

A rendering of the new Winston-Salem store...I hope the one in Clemmons looks similar. It has a look similar to many of their historic locations in Florida.

The clock could be better situated. My guess is that after the first "what the..?" people go back to their usual sweeping past form of driving. The approach to that intersection has become so congested; the need to be on the ball so imperative; that it's not wise to dawdle and stare. The person for whom the clock was created as a tribute is not being served where it now stands. I would suggest that a better spot would be the intersection of Harper and 158; it would make it appear part of Tanglewood; but that's outside of Clemmons right now.

Kinnamon Food Lion - forgot about that one It is one of the nicer ones. I've been hunting around to see if the idea to build apartments, using the entrance to the strip mall, still stands. I'm sure the Clemmons poobahs would like to see those ratty rental homes along the road be taken down. And that would hopefully draw more interest to the other open properties in that strip.

That Publix is interested isn't surprising, and it is a good sign of recovery. There are two articles in The Journal - one from 2013 and the other 2014, which indicate the worry and now hope about the economy of the area

2013 - Strip mall vacancies draw attention: Lewisville, Clemmons explore ways to fill empty stores - Winston-Salem Journal: News

2014 -- Kinnamon Village lands four new tenants - Winston-Salem Journal: Local Business

There'll be people who are fine with crossing I-40, or taking the snarly exit to get to the new store. Having checked out Publix, they won't gain me as a customer. The people at the Clemmons Lowe's especially, have worked hard to build a loyal customer base. I enjoy seeing the chicken ladies and the people turning out the home made sausage. Some of that stuff is powerful. Not to mention supporting a locally based chain.
