COOPERSTOWN, NY - The Cooperstown Historic Preservation and Architectural Review Board held a public hearing Tuesday regarding a proposed Dunkin Donuts / Baskin Robins store.
The business would be located at the intersection of Walnut and Chestnut streets in the village.
An overwhelming majority of those who attended the hearing spoke out against the proposal.
Aviva Schneider, who lives on Walnut Street in the village, was one of those opposed to the idea.
“I’m not even sure why we would even be considering a proposal like this. It’s completely out of character, in my opinion, with the historical nature of this magnificent village that we are privileged to be a part of.”
HPAR will continue to study the proposal over the next few weeks.
When they feel they’ve gathered enough information, the board will hold a vote on the proposal.
