The City of Beaumont is taking more action toward paving the way for a new HEB store at the former Baptist Hospital location.

Council members have already approved abandoning a portion of Stagg Drive as long as certain conditions are met by the developer of property next to the area near College and 11th Streets.

The city is scheduled to consider a resolution that would force the developers to meet all requirements necessary for HEB to have full title of the property.
