There's only room for one Main Street in Natick

NATICK

Natick Town Meeting members said last night they've got one Main Street, and they want to keep it that way.

The developers of Natick Mall are pitching the idea of creating what they call a "Main Street concept" on a portion of the expanded mall site. That rubs Craig Ross, a leader of Natick 360, which is developing a long-range planning document for the town, the wrong way.

"If there's going to be a Main Street developed on Natick Mall, I don't want it called 'Main Street Natick'," Ross told fellow Town Meeting members last night. "We already have one of those."

Members unanimously approved a resolution requesting that the Natick Planning Board "review and approve all site names and/or identifiers which may be applied to any part of the Natick Mall as part of its special permitting process."
