The vote was almost unanimous on Thursday. But it was a big “almost.”
Here is video of Morristown Councilwoman Rebecca Feldman stating her opposition to a CVS pharmacy championed by Mayor Tim Dougherty. The Mayor’s rebuttal follows, along with the 6-1 council vote in his favor.
The pharmacy is proposed for the corner of Spring Street and Speedwell Avenue, as part of the town’s Speedwell Avenue redevelopment.
Rebecca’s primary concern is a two-way roadway that CVS wants to run between its front door and the sidewalk. The councilwoman said there has not been sufficient study of the potential hazard to pedestrians. The Mayor said such issues can be reviewed by the planning board; overall, he contends the project is a much-needed shot in the arm for the neighborhood.
