NEW CAR DEALERSHIP ON CENTRAL AVE---FIRST NEW CAR DEALERSHIP TO BE BUILT ON CENTRAL AVE SINCE OUR NEW ZONE CHANGE WAS APPROVED LAST YEAR!
An applicant recently submitted a special permit (Car Sales use) application involving a proposal to adaptively reuse the former Barnes & Noble building and site (now known as Harrows) for a conversion to a Hyundai automobile dealership/showroom and sales lot. The proposal requires a special permit from the Planning Board as well as site plan approval from the Planning Board. Minor modifications to the existing parking layout are proposed, as is a site-wide landscaping plan. The applicant also proposes pedestrian improvements including a sidewalk along the site’s frontage with Central Park Avenue. The Planning Board review process, which will include a public hearing, is anticipated to begin in February-March.
