To Infiniti and beyond!

Posted by Ralph Ranalli March 5, 2007 10:05 AM



An Infiniti showroom may soon join the Ford dealership Herb Chambers operates at the intersection of Route 9 and Otis Street.

Herb Chambers has filed an application with the Westborough Planning Board to build a 34,098-square-foot glass showroom on a portion of the 6.7 acres site, which is home to the 18,727-square-foot Ford dealership and an 8,910-square-foot collision center. The expansion is expected to add 28 car trips during morning peak traffic hours, 45 car trips during afternoon hours, and a total of 121 parking spaces to that portion of Route 9.

For the project to proceed, it must be granted three special permits because there will be shared parking, a shared driveway and a change of use, Town Planner Jim Robbins said. The Board of Selectmen will have a public hearing on the water tank issue at 8 p.m. on March 13 in the hearing room of the Town House.
