Carrboro aldermen to hear CVS plans Tuesday



Much-discussed plans for a two-story CVS in downtown Carrboro will be back before town leaders Tuesday night.

The pharmacy bigbox's latest plans for a 24,590 square-foot store at the intersection of Greensboro and Weaver streets are likely to draw the usual share of ire from some Carrboro protesters, who argue the store will clog the town's center with traffic congestion, destroy historic homes and otherwise disrupt town life.

CVS officials say their current location near Carr Mill Mall is too small to support demand in the Orange County town.

Pharmacy plans have been through various phases, although the slight modifications in the newest CVS plan, which include a small partially enclosed park and a reduction in parking spaces from 65 to 61, don't seem likely to satiate the store's chief critics.

Tuesday's meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at Carrboro Town Hall. View the meeting agenda here.
