The Vincennes Historic Review Board has approved the removal of a strip of retail buildings along 5th Street between Busseron and Main Streets. Pioneer Oil has purchased all the retail buildings along that side of the block and asked to remove half of them to allow for more parking. Pioneer will move its headquarters from Lawrenceville, Illinois to the old Hills building on Main Street on the same block and needs space for its employees to park. The Board approved the demolitions and parking plan after asking for some landscaping with the project. Pioneer has also purchased the retail building on the 4th Street side of the same block, but did not ask to remove the building which now contains Perry Furniture.
