Neighbors from East Watertown will gather to discuss the CVS proposed to go into Coolidge Square.
The Coolidge Square Neighborhood Group send out the following announcement about the meeting:
The Coolidge Square Neighborhood Group has called a Community Meeting for Monday January 12 at 7 p.m. The meeting is intended to discuss a neighborhood response to the proposal to build a 14,000 square foot CVS at the corner of Arlington and Mt. Auburn Streets that is presently under consideration by the Zoning Board of Appeal.
The gathering is intended to provide residents with information and a forum to air their concerns. Many residents feel that the project is out of scale with the rest of the Coolidge Square Business District and will generate too much traffic. The meeting will be held in the auditorium of the Apartments at the Coolidge School, 319 Arlington Street near the corner of Arlington and Mt. Auburn. The Zoning Board of Appeal will meet to deliberate on the project January 28, 2015 at 7 p.m. at the Town Administration Building.
The group will also be standing out against the project in Coolidge Square the next three Saturdays January 10, 17 and 24. They will be handing out information and collecting signatures on a petition to the Zoning Board.
