This week the Buzz is building momentum — and maybe building houses.

Developer Chase Custom Homes & Finance out of Westbrook has proposed building a 31-lot subdivision on 33.2 wooded acres at 131 Hogan Road in Lewiston.

The project will go before the Planning Board for a public hearing April 9.

Each lot in Sanctuary Estates would be at least 20,000 square feet with 50 feet of frontage, for a single-family home, according to the application submitted to the city.

It would also maintain 11 acres of “naturally wooded open space.”

The cost of road construction and related improvements is estimated at $920,000.

Ready, set, grow

On Monday, the Lewiston Planning Board unanimously approved Valley Beverage’s $1.5 million expansion at 2019 Lisbon St.

The former Federal Distributors wanted the 23,612-square-foot addition to accommodate more storage for the growing business.

Work is expected to start this spring after securing Department of Environmental Protection permits.
