Restaurant wholesaler still eyes Londonderry


A traffic study will be done as the plan moves on.

"When we get the traffic report, that would dictate what would need to be done out there," town planner John Vogl said.

Restaurant Depot's chief operating office Larry Cohen said traffic and safety are always concerns.

"We don't want a situation where there are accidents," he said.

Planner Cynthia May said she liked the changes.

"This is a good use for this location," she said. "It looks less temporary, it looks like it belongs there."

Town Manager Kevin Smith said the the plan is still in the conceptual stages, but he would welcome Restaurant Depot to town.

"They are a very reputable company," he said.

Planning Board Chairman Art Rugg said residents will have a chance to speak if the plan moves forward.

"The plan has come a long way," Rugg said. "But we should talk to abutters and also have their input."

Cohen said he is willing to try to make the plan work.

"I'm not sure we can solve the problem," he said, "but we want to come up with a creative solution. Hopefully, we can come up with some because we'd like to be here. Londonderry is appealing to us."
