A new Aldi grocery store and Chase Bank are being proposed for 1151 West Main Street, the lot across from Starbucks off of exit 53 that has remained largely vacant for years. The location was home to a car dealership years ago.
The proposal would see an Aldi, a fast-growing German discount grocery store chain, be located in a 19,000 square foot building, and Chase Bank in a separate 3,500 square foot building.
The project would require 133 parking spaces, and would include a driveway, retaining walls, rock cut walls, storm and sanitary sewer infrastructure and utilities to the site.
Due to the wetlands impacts, the project is first going to the Inland Wetlands Commission for review. The Commission has selected engineering firm Codespodi Associates to serve as the peer reviewer, advising the town on the application and wetlands impacts.
