CVSThe Old Northside Neighborhood Association is fighting an administrative approval of plans to build a CVS pharmacy at the southeast corner of 16th and Meridian streets. The Metropolitan Development Commission will consider the appeal at its meeting on July 2. Among the group’s concerns: The plans don’t include an entrance at the intersection, and the approval doesn’t include a stipulation that customers leaving the store’s drive-through must turn right onto 16th Street. The DPW intends to allow only right turns, said Jeff York, a senior city planner. As for the other issue, CVS has a security concern about adding a second entrance, York said. The pharmacy’s entrance is planned for the rear, facing the store’s parking lot. The neighborhood group wants a layout more friendly to pedestrians.
