CVS Caremark Corp. is proposing to demolish 3 existing standalone structures and combine the parcels of land to build a CVS mega store at the corner of Washington Street and Swanton Street in Winchester, MA. If this project is approved by the Town of Winchester Zoning Board of Appeals, construction will begin late this spring.
The scope of this project is not in accordance with the character of the neighborhood. A commercial building of this size (12000 sq ft.) will further complicate the existing traffic congestion on Washington and Swanton Street causing significant delays to Winchester Hospital (safety concern), the Transfer Station, Muraco School, St. Mary's Church, Rt. 93/95 access, etc. Safety concerns include increased crime, increased traffic, 55 ft. delivery trucks navigating residential neighborhoods, risk to children walking to schools as well as pedestrians walking to town center, train, etc.
Please join the initiative to protect Winchester from mega stores! IT’S NOT TOO LATE!!!
