The Town of Glocester wants to allow Cumberland Farms to build on the “Purple Cat “ property on Money Hill Road.
This move by the town, will have catastrophic effects on SEVERAL Local Small Businesses…
Is that the economic growth plan of Historic Chepachet, to bring in Franchises to displace the small businesses?
(Did we not spend 2 years putting in historic brick sidewalks and lighting to now bring in a Cumberland Farms?)
What’s next Stop and Shop, Home Depot, McDonalds… closing more small businesses.
Do we want Chepachet to be the next Smithfield????
Is this the same Cumberland Farms that abandoned Chepachet several years ago? Who’s to say it will not happen again?
Asked YOUR opinion????
Explained any variances to the Town Laws that will need to be granted? … weren’t these laws created for a reason?
Considered the effects of the Gas Fumes on the children at the NewHolistic Youth Center not more than 50 feet away?
Considered that they are adding a source of possible contamination (which the town is still recovering from with the old Texaco).. with two restaurants within close proximity and a new “proposed” Winery in their backyard?
Evaluated the impact of in/out traffic on a road that is already severely backed up nightly.. and could worsen with the new proposed Roundabout?
This town has been built and maintained by the small businesses..
Other communities in RI and Mass have said NO to Cumberland Farms.. we should too!
