    The Bellevue Planning and Zoning Commission has approved the design of a 15,000-square-foot redevelopment of a bowling alley at the south end of Main Street.
    The renovation and expansion of the existing gas station and convenience store will be undertaken by Valley Co-op Stores, a company based in Jerome with five similar stores in southern Idaho.
    The bowling alley is in demolition mode now. Valley Co-op will continue to operate a gas station and convenience store at the site, during renovation of the rest of the building.
    Bellevue Planning Director Craig Eckles said the portion of the building that was formerly used as a bowling alley will be used as a retail sales area, inventory storage-receiving area and a restaurant.
    Entrances containing 920 new square feet will be incorporated into the new design. The projected date for a grand opening of the retail facility will be some time in 2014.
    The Valley Co-op store will sell clothing, shoes, hardware, lawn and garden equipment, farm supplies, seasonal merchandise, fuel, convenience-store merchandise, beverages and sporting goods.
