Here are my notes from the Ocean Beach Planning Board Meeting – Wed., Dec. 4th.
The planning board meeting opened up with a modification to the agenda bringing the CVS Pharmacy ABC License Type 21 to being the first of action Items to be addressed tonight. The CVS representatives presented their Proposed OB Community Benefits Package which was created by meetings between CVS and members of the Town Council and Ocean Beach Mainstreet Association.
Gretchen Kinney Newsom president of the Ocean Beach Town Council spoke as the floor was open to the public and reported to the Planning Board that CVS has cooperated with all of the OB Town Council’s requests and that she now supports CVS coming into the neighborhood.
CVS has vowed on their word that they will follow through with the proposals in the OB Community Benefits Package.
CVS vows in their Community Benefits Package to a variety of Alcohol Security Measures, 2 of which were modified by the board. It was clarified that there will be no bottles of liquor less than 755ml for sale. In support of local brewery’s who largely sell 22oz bottles of their product, CVS will allow the sale of these although single beers will not be sold otherwise.
