 dunkinProposed Dunkin Donuts at 14 Dedham Street

The Town has received a proposal from local business owners to operate a Dunkin Donuts franchise in the space most recently occupied by Taffy Café. At its meeting of June 1, 2015, the Planning Board voted to require a full site plan review of the proposal. The full site plan review began Monday, June 15, at which time the Planning Board asked for a complete site plan. The site plan was not ready to be discussed at the June 29 Planning Board meeting. The site plan has not yet been submitted so the proposed Dunkin Donuts will not be on the agenda at the July 13 meeting. Once a site plan has been submitted, the date of the meeting at which it will be discussed will be posted here.  Information about this proposal is posted here.
