Video: Board of Selectmen take "No Action" on CVS at July Meeting

At the July 14th meeting Hopkinton Selectmen agreed to take no action on CVS. Some Residents asked Selectmen to file an appeal to block a CVS pharmacy from opening at the former Colella's Supermarket on Main Street. The Board of Selectmen agreed that at the current time they do not have enough information or grounds to take an action on the matter. Chair Ben Palleiko stated that the No CVS group should file the appeal and the Selectmen can jump in if they determine they have a case; "I don't think there is a strong enough feeling we have a case to make."

Raymond Miyares in attendance at the Meeting on behalf of Town Counsel emphasized it would be very difficult to prove that CVS is not an allowable retail facility for the former Colella's; "it's pretty difficult to make the case this is not a retail store...I would hate to be the one that has to stand up in-front of a judge and say this is not a retail store." Miyares also stated that if anyone wants to appeal the building inspector's decision to grant Crosspoint Associates an interior construction permit, July 25th would be the deadline.

Further discussion is expected at the August Board of Selectmen meeting. Check out highlights of the discussion in the video below.

Video: "Yogurt Beach" Welcomed to Hopkinton

Town officials, local business leaders and government officials along with the chamber of commerce gathered at "Yogurt Beach" on 34 Main Street to welcome the frozen yogurt shop to downtown Hopkinton. After a ribbon cutting ceremony, Chamber of Commerce President Scott Richardson presented owner Chris Cooney with a certificate of recognition on behalf of the chamber, State Representative Carolyn Dykema was in attendance to offer Chris a citation on behalf of the state.

John Coutinho represented the Selectmen to welcome Yogurt Beach and emphasized "Yogurt Beach" is positive for downtown: "this is part of that whole visioning we have been working on the last year, part of the downtown revitalization."

Chair of the Planning Board Ken Weismantel spoke about how new business coming to town such as Yogurt Beach helped erode the conversation of increasing downtown parking capabilities; "I am using this as an opportunity to suggest to our selectmen that it's time to get some off-street parking so that business's can come here, we don't want to be limited by the amount of seats."

Owner of "Yogurt Beach" and Hopkinton native Chris Cooney mentioned his family moved to Memphis for 2 years but they are glad to be back; "we went for 2 years, and I will say you don't realize what you have until you leave it... we love Hopkinton, we love the school system, we love the people, it's very unique here." Cooney also praised Town Manager Norman Khumalo as well as town boards for the extensive help they provided in the process of opening his business; "it wasn't simple, but it was smooth, we ran into hurdles, they helped us get over hurdles...they gave us a lot of suggestions on how to get through it rather than saying hey it's your's."
