The City Council at its meeting this Tuesday, March 13 will hold a public hearing on an a proposal to locate a Dunkin’ Donuts at a strip mall at 79 Lynnfield St. Linear Retail Property 1 LLC is seeking a special permit to house the store in vacant space at the mall, according to city clerk Timothy Spanos.
The council last July rejected a previous special permit application by Linear Retail, the mall owner, to locate a Dunkin’ Donuts in the space. Spanos said that applicants denied special permits normally must wait two years to reapply. But he said state law allows an applicant to return sooner if the Planning Board approves their filing of a new application. The Peabody Planning Board last December approved Linear Retail’s request to file a new application provided that it be substantively different from the previous one.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at City Hall, the council will hold a hearing on a request by Fox Run Limousine for a change in address on its limousine license. The company seeks to relocate from its current site at 134 Newbury St. (Route 1 South) to 484 Lowell St.
