Application Withdrawn For Dollar Store In Mashpee

MASHPEE – The developers of a proposed Dollar Tree store in Mashpee have waived their application as of last Tuesday.

Industria Development Group Inc. had originally applied this past July to construct a nearly 10,000 square foot commercial building and parking lot on Wampanoag Avenue.

The decision was influenced by a group of Mashpee residents, who thought the store would be a negative addition to the neighborhood, citing increased traffic and a decline in the areas character.

Kevin Kirrane, the attorney to the developers, argued that the dollar store would have been positive for the neighborhood.

“My clients remain convinced that they would have developed this long vacant commercial site in a manner that would have been an asset, rather than a detriment, to the town, and thank the board for its understanding and attention to request,” said Kirrane.

The project required a number of variances from the zoning board including those for a “natural state” buffer, parking in front of the site, landscaping within the parking area and access to allow for construction.

“Seeing that the Dollar Store has withdrawn its application, we will not take any more testimony on this hearing, the application for the dollar store is now closed,” said Zoning board Chairman Jonathon Furbush.
