The Rumors Were True – Costco is Coming to Genesee County (Maybe)
We've been hearing rumors for years that Costco was coming to Genesee County. Some people said they were going to build a location in Burton. While others claimed the store would be built in Mundy Township or even Grand Blanc. Well, if you had money riding on Mundy Township, you win.
According to ABC 12, the township confirmed that they received an application from the popular warehouse chain on Thursday morning.
Just because the company applied to build a store in Mundy Township, doesn't mean it's a done deal. It still needs to be approved by the township which means there will be meetings, public hearings, etc. However, from what we understand, the township supports the plan.
Where Would Costco Be Located?
If plans are approved, the store would be located on Hill Road, just off US 23. It would sit across from the Gateway Center.
We're assuming (guessing) it would somehow sit in this area next to US 23.
That area can get very congested at times, I can't imagine how the township would deal with the increased traffic.
While most people on social media are excited about Costco coming to Genesee County, others are concerned about the location.
I think they could of found a better location for this. Hill rd traffic is already terrible in that area. Now they are just going to add to the chaos. Mundy township is in a growing phase ,They also got an application for a new business at Hill & Linden intersection.
We did hear that the township is planning on widening some of the roads in that area and planning on some intersection work as well to help with the congestion.
