CARRBORO - CVS representatives will meet with the community from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at Carrboro Town Hall to talk about revised plans for a 24,600-square-foot, two-story building at 201 N. Greensboro St.
Three new options add awnings and balconies to the exterior of the building and show various reductions in the amount of land and parking spaces that would be required. At least two options would negate a rezoning of parcels on Center Street.
CVS representative Chris Bostic said in a recent email the revisions are based on comments received from the town’s Planning Board.
The developers filed a plan with the town last year to build a first-floor CVS store with office and storage space above. The new CVS store would replace a smaller, high-volume store at Carr Mill Mall.
The developers have held several meeting with neighbors, who remain concerned about how the lights, noise and traffic would affect Center Street.
CVS wants the town to rezone six parcels on the block to conditional business use and is seeking a conditional-use permit for the project. Neighbors filed a protest petition in April that would require three-quarters of the Board of Aldermen to approve the rezoning.
The project was set for an April public hearing, but the developer requested it be postponed.
The new plans are posted online at www.centerofcarrboro.blogspot.com. Questions about the plans should be emailed to Chris Bostic firstname.lastname@example.org before the meeting.
