In an ongoing effort to block a Domino’s franchise from opening in Roslindale Village, the nonprofit Roslindale Village Main Street organization has developed a petition to ask the city to deny a common victualler license to the owner.
Opponents had plans to present to the petition to City Hall next week at a licensing hearing, but Domino’s has requested a change of date for the hearing to November 7, according to Steve Gag, president of Roslindale Village Main Street.
The idea of the proposed location, at 4238 Washington Street, across from Adams Park and next door a Subway franchise, has created a small maelstrom in the community. Domino’s has another store at 4640 Washington Street, just 1 mile away, which will remain open.
Last month, at a packed standing-room only meeting, residents and local business owners rose to speak out against the pizza chain, citing possible traffic problems, parking issues, and the adverse impact to local businesses, among other concerns.
Organizers hope to get 1,000 signatures on the petition before the hearing, according to a statement. Several shop owners in the area have posted petitions in their businesses.
