Metal fences have been erected along the Rte. 9 east property near Justine’s Table and Dunkin’ Donuts, as developers get ready to tear down some structures and add a fourth CVS to the Wellesley landscape (the others are in Linden Square, Wellesley Square and Lower Falls). We have an inquiry in to get a sense of when the project might be done.
This CVS at 990 Worcester St., had been the source of significant controversy over the past few years, with many residents ruing possible traffic trouble as a result of the new store going in. Last year, discussions over the proposed CVS parking lot continued.
But according to Meghan Jop, Wellesley’s Planning Director, the appeals that had stalled the project to the right of 978 Worcester St., have been resolved and a single building with a double drive-thru is on the way.
The demolition permit hasn’t been issued, Jop says, but the town expects the application for it to arrive soon.
Meanwhile, if you hadn’t noticed, the big tarps and equipment for the Morses Pond dredging project that had been hogging up the St. James parking lot, have disappeared. Morses Pond appears set to open Memorial Day Weekend.
