Lower Merion's Board of Commissioners on Wednesday night approved a preliminary land development plan for a Belmont Avenue CVS pharmacy, with several members voicing optimism about how one of the "gateways" to the township would give a better first impression than it does now.
Summit Realty intends to build the pharmacy at the southwest corner of Rock Hill Road, knocking out a shuttered gas station and realigning the intersection with the goal of improving traffic flow.
Parking spaces also would be provided for users of the Cynwyd Heritage Trail, whose northern terminus is found at the same intersection.
Said Commissioner Brian McGuire, a Bala Cynwyd representative: "People have waited a long time for something to happen here and are very gratified to see this."
