COOPERSTOWN, N.Y.-For the first time, a national coffee chain could be making its way to Cooperstown.

A Dunkin Donuts coffee shop is proposed at the intersection of Walnut and Chestnut Streets.

The Cooperstown Historic Preservation and Architectural Review Board held a meeting Tuesday to hear from Bohler Engineering who would be designing the shop.

HPAR did not hear any public comments Tuesday. They did however schedule a public meeting for October, when citizens will be able to see the pros and cons of the project.

Currently, there are no national chain restaurants in Cooperstown. Most of the restaurants are Mom and Pop style, and Mark Travor a Cooperstown resident has mixed feelings for a national chain like Dunkin Donuts coming to town.

"I think mixed feelings. I think Cooperstown has got kind of a unique feel of chains around and I know Stage coach does a lot of really great business so I think having a Dunkin would kind off pull some of that revenue away from them. But I know my wife would be happy about it so kind of mixed feelings." Travor said.

As of now, there is no word on if the project will move forward. The public hearing is set for October 8th.
