Liquor license application, HyVee proposal

Sorry that these very important notices didn’t make it into the Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood e-News that went out yesterday.  One is about an information session about a HyVee grocery store proposed for the vicinity of Target.  The other is a liquor store application for Madison Plaza in the space formerly occupied by Dream Bikes.

HyVee Aims for Store Across from Super Target.  Your Views Wanted Nov. 1

HyVee is proposing to build a full service grocery store in the Orchard Pointe development across from Super Target.

There are many potential challenges, but also some potential benefits that could come from this project if it is approved.
The City of Fitchburg has requested that HyVee meet with the surrounding neighborhoods to tell them about the plan, hear their concerns and answer questions.

HyVee will be making this neighborhood presentation on Tuesday, November 1st, at 7 pm at Fitchburg Fire Station #2 on King James Way. This is part of the Jamestown Neighborhood Association's monthly meeting.  All interested parties are encouraged to attend.
