Bank proposed for Bedford plaza off Rte. 101
A meeting tonight will address the proposed bank as well as some improvements to the 40-year-old plaza, including reconstruction of the paved parking areas facing Route 101 and Wallace Road with landscaped islands and green space; new, modern exterior lighting; removal of excess pavement around the site’s perimeter; and removal of one of two existing driveways at Wallace Road.
“Many years ago, there was a bank on that site. If we get this application approved, it will increase the town’s tax revenue. It will allow us to put more money into the plaza, eliminate the cut-through of traffic, and add more landscaping and more sidewalks for people to come to the plaza,” Greiner said. “Some people do walk to the plaza.”
In a letter to Greiner, Ronald Petrin, pharmacist and owner of Bedford Pharmacy, said the proposed bank will improve the plaza and be a benefit to customers.
“I believe the redesign improves the safety of the site,” said Jean in a letter to town planner Rick Sawyer. “I am an advocate of responsible commercial development and redevelopment to strengthen the tax base for the town of Bedford. I believe this proposal accomplishes that objective without detriment to the residents.
“Progress in a community requires capital investment, imagination and consideration of the community’s lifestyle,” Scanlon said.
