Hearing Tonight for Trapelo Road Complex

The hearing will begin at 8 p.m. at City Hall

The City Council will hold a public hearing tonight to review and discuss special permit applications for a coffee shop and Asian restaurant at 1019 Trapelo Rd.

The hearing will begin at 8 p.m. at City Hall.

The developer, 1019 Trapelo LLC., has applied for permits to open the retail stores at the building at the corner of Lexington Street and Trapelo. The firm's prior plans for a bank, Starbucks and Asian eatery fell apart after neighbors raised concerns about traffic.

Neighbors raised concerns over traffic? Maybe they havent left the house for a few years because the traffic in that area is already pretty heavy. Adding more businesses is not going to make it any worse. Another example of our Cities efforts to keep businesses out of Waltham.

WHY DO WE NOT HAVE ANY GOOD SHOPPING IN WALTHAM? BJ'S AND COSTCO PAY TO BE A CUSTOMER NOT GOOD. I DON'T NEED TEN TUBES OF TOOTHPASTE. WHAT ABOUT A TARGET, CHRISTMASS TREE SHOP, OR MACY'S? NOW THATS SHOPPING.

Nancy: U r so right..also the snail pace of ALL these Waltham City Council hearings! U would think we were trying to get Wendys to stay open later than 2AM! Waltham is STILL living in the Dark ages! I bet it would take 'Grover Cronin's" 5 years to open, nowadays!

PS: I was being nasty about Wendy's hearings....how many hearings blah blah to authorize them to stay open ( @ least inside the restaurant) till 2AM! HORRORS A place to eat in Waltham @ 2AM! Horrors!

This intersection is always busy and the bank next door is dangerous because the curb cut is just after the light. This building will make it even worse if a coffee shop goes in with the flow of in-and-out. We have 2 dunkin donuts in the area? Poor planning. Making it an office building would have been better.

CP an office building? Boy how boring!

So this would cause traffic problems, but a Condo/Apts/Shops/Banks building at the new pending project at Main and Moody St. won't?

And btw - some people don't care for dunks. This city needs a Starbucks!
