Poll Results: Most Want New CVS
Sixty-six percent of readers voted in favor of a new CVS being located in Arnold.
When polled, most Patch readers indicated they wanted the business in town.
Patch asked: Does Broadneck Need a CVS? And here are the results:
- Yes 35 (66%)
- No 18 (33%)
Total votes: 53
The developer for the CVS proposal, JC BAR Properties Inc., has scheduled an informational meeting on Wednesday to give the public more information on the project. Representatives from the developer and the county's planning offices will be in attendance.
The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Arnold Volunteer Fire Department.
News spread about the proposal late last week after Arnold Preservation Council President Elizabeth Rosborg sent invitations to the public for the Wednesday meeting. She also was seeking public input on the proposal.
Rosborg told The Capital that some were in favor of the new pharmacy, saying it would bring additional jobs, but most seemed against the CVS, saying it could increase traffic at a critical intersection along Ritchie Highway in Arnold.
The Furniture Solution is still open for business, and store owner Gerard Kvasnovsky told Patch he did not know about the proposed CVS.
Would a new CVS be good or bad for Arnold? Let me know what you think in the comments.
