LISBON - Parkway Ford is planning on expanding this fall to bring its building in line with other Ford dealers across the nation.

The dealership has intended to renovate the store since moving the Potsdam Ford dealership to Lisbon last year.

“It’s something that needs to be done,” Kevin Sellers, sales manager, said.

Parkway Ford is located at 9890 Route 37, near the Lisbon Beach and Campground.

Town Councilor Susan M. Duffy said the dealership is in the process of submitting a state environmental quality review to the town’s planning board.

The planning board’s next meeting is Aug. 12.

“My understanding is they’ll have something for the next meeting,” Ms. Duffy, who serves as liaison to the planning board, said.

Ms. Duffy said the architectural plans have already been submitted to the planning board.

Numerous attempts to get details about the exact size and proportions of the project from the business and the town were unsuccessful, but Mr. Sellers said it will be an intensive renovation.

Mr. Sellers said Ford wants stores across the nation to be easily recognizable through uniform building design.

The project will see most of the building redone, Mr. Sellers said, including the showroom.

“It will be the nicest looking dealership in the north country,” he said.
