Kia dealership planning a move
Phil Alderman has submitted plans to build a Kia dealership near his Chevrolet dealership in Rutland Town.
Alderman submitted an Act 250 permit application to build a 14,208-square-foot building on Middle Road that would be the new home for his Kia dealership.
Since he started selling the Kia brand last year, Alderman has run his dealership out of a leased building on South Main Street adjacent to the Midway Mobil station and convenience store.
The District 1 Environmental Commission is treating the project as a minor application. No hearing will be held unless one is requested by an interested party by Sept. 20.
Kia is not Alderman’s first foray into Asian-brand vehicles. A decade ago, the owner of Alderman’s Chevrolet opened Alderman’s Toyota on Route 7 South.
