Countering mounting concerns about empty storefronts, three business got zoning approvals last week with plans to open this spring — two on Main Street and one on Danbury Road.
The three new businesses — two restaurants and a women’s fashion shop — got approvals from the Planning and Zoning Commission at its Feb. 26 meeting.
The new businesses approvals were:
- Tablao Wine Bar & Restaurant at 426 Main Street (the former 50 Coins spot in the alleyway) had a revision of a special permit and a village district application approved by the commission, allowing the business to have two signs, one on its awning and another “blade” sign facing Main Street. The location is part of a Main Street block owned by Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc.
- Hers Modern Boutique, moving into the former Farmer’s Insurance office at 448 Main Street, had a village district application approved for a sign on the building’s wall. This location, too, is part of Urstadt Biddle Properties’ Main Street holdings.
- Posa, a new restaurant going into the former Luna Rosa location in Commerce Park at 90 Danbury Road, had a revision to a special permit application approved authorizing the replacement of of two large windows with collapsible doors and a new picture window. The property is owned by Commerce Park JV LLC.
