The agenda calls for the board to hear testimony on three high-profile plans:
• The controversial Walgreen’s application for a 14,200-square-foot store at the former Rassas Buick car lot on Broad Street.
• A plan to install a 7,100-square-foot new family-style Italian restaurant called Patrizia‘s at 28 Broad Street, last occupied by Primas Home Café, furnishings.
Wait, isn’t Carlo’s already opened? Indeed it is, and it’s been packing in crowds for a week now.
Borough planning Director Donna Smith-Barr tells redbankgreen that Carlo’s opened as a retail bakery, but wants to have table seating. That requires a change of use approval to primary food service, and triggers parking requirements, she said.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at borough hall, at 90 Monmouth Street. The order in which the applications will be heard is at the discretion of the board chairman, John Cash.
