Bellingham's Planning Board is one hard-working group.
One of the few town boards meeting between the Christmas and New Year's holidays, the board will continue discussions tomorrow night on W/S Development's plans for a major retail center on undeveloped land between North Main Street and Interstate 495.
The company, which created the Home Depot, Stallbrook, and WalMart shopping areas in town over the past decade, hopes to bring 80 stores to its latest project, an outdoor mall similar to the Shoppes at Blackstone.
The board has until Jan. 26 to make a decision on preliminary subdivision plans.
