Walgreens Hearing, Dogs Unleashed On Tap This Week
A look at some stories to watch for this week in Teaneck
Teaneck's zoning board on Thursday will continue hearing testimony in a developer's plan to build a Walgreens store in place of three Cedar Lane properties.
Win Development LLC has submitted plans to build the Walgreens at the former Louie's Charcoal Pit, the vacant Davis Toys and corner gas station Larry's Friendly Service. The plans call for the existing buildings to be torn down to make way for the 10,000 square foot pharmacy and a 26 space parking lot.
The developer appeared before a zoning board meeting last month, but the presentations were continued.
Some residents and Cedar Lane merchants have criticized the plan, saying the proposed Walgreens is entering a crowded market and would not fit in with other stores in the area. If approved, Walgreens would become the third drug store in the immediate area.
Thursday's public hearing will begin at 7 p.m. and be held at the Teaneck Public Library's auditorium.
