Are you ready for PHASE 2?
On July 12th, the ZBA ruled in favor of the proposed CVS, albeit with several restrictions.
NEIGHBORS FOR RATIONAL GROWTH
THANKS FOR ALL OF YOUR EFFORTS AND SUPPORT!!
The No Mega CVS team of volunteers, neighbors, friends and families printed, copied, stamped and mailed! They delivered flyers door to door and collected new volunteers and supporters at Farmer’s Market. They phone-banked, drove from one end of Winchester to the other collecting contributions and spreading the word that the Mega CVS project is not a done deal.
And now, it’s official!!
We are moving forward with appealing the Zoning Boards decision on the grounds that they have not upheld the Town of Winchester’s Zoning By-laws in regard to the following: parking space dimensions and designated requirement of a fire safety lane around the structure’s perimeter. We have engaged our attorney Dan Hill and our appeal will be submitted on or before October 2nd.
The significance behind the parking space size is critical, not only to the final outcome of this project, but for future developments in our town. It is the difference between a 14,000 sq ft mega store and a development whose size is of an appropriate scale for a commercial property that sits surrounded by the homes of your Winchester neighbors.
If the Zoning Board and it’s officers are allowed to dismiss the zoning bylaws in this case, ALL of Winchester’s residents and business owners are at great risk of seeing zoning bylaws ignored in the future, which ultimately effects homeowner’s property values and business’s viability. If the Zoning Board is not challenged on a project of this great a scale, how can we be assured that similar infractions will not occur in the future involving both commercial and residential projects, both large and small?
Your help is needed NOW more than EVER!
