CDS: HANNAFORD SUIT DENIED, NEW GROCERY STANDS

by Gair on May 10, 2013

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN SAYS A CARROLL COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE HAS DENIED A PETITION BY THE HANNAFORD SUPERMARKET GROCERY CHAIN THAT ASKED THE JUDGE TO REVERSE THE DECISION BY THE CONWAY PLANNING BOARD APPROVING THE CONSTRUCTION OF ANOTHER GROCERY STORE ON ROUTE 16 IN NORTH CONWAY.

THE SUN SAYS JUDGE STEVEN HOURAN ISSUED HIS RULING MONDAY, MAY 6, 2013 AND HANNAFORD HAS ABOUT A MONTH TO APPEAL IT.

THE SUN SAYS HANNAFORD OPPOSED THE PLANNING BOARD’S DECISION TO APPROVE A REQUEST FROM RESIDENCES AT SACO RIVER, LLC TO BUILD A MORE THAN 80,000 SQUARE FOOT RETAIL GROCERY STORE BEHIND THE T.J. MAXX STORE IN NORTH CONWAY.

HANNAFORD CONTENDS IT WILL BE HURT BY EXTRA TRAFFIC GENERATED BY THE NEW STORE IF A SPECIAL CONNECTING DRIVEWAY ACCESS ROAD IS NOT BUILT AT A SPECIAL ANGLE TO BUFFERS BUT THE SUN SAYS HOURAN SIDED WITH THE PLANING BOARD AND RULED AGAINST HANNAFORD.
