  Its not a new subdivision

     The recent laying of sewer pipe on The State Bank owned property on Highway 24 has caused speculation that a new subdivision might be going in. That is not the case, said Luke Smith, vice president of the bank.
   The 50-acre property in question is at 12740 Highway 24 east on the south side of Judge Orr Road, and runs between Judge Orr Road and Highway 24; adjacent to Meridian Ranch.
   It is still for sale, but we are actively pursuing a buyer, Smith said. The bank has owned the vacant property for about 10 years. He said the work in progress now is being done by Meridian Metropolitan Service District on an existing sewer easement; the work will benefit existing houses in Meridian Ranch, not new construction.
   David Pelser, director of the Meridian Metropolitan Service District wastewater treatment plant, verified that the sewer work currently being done on that property is on a sewer easement owned by Meridian and will benefit existing houses. He said the easement runs along the backside of the subdivision, and a sewer overflow line is being constructed on the easement. Pelser said it would tie into existing sewer lines near the shopping center at the intersection of Highway 24 and Woodmen Road.
