Dental firm seeks to open in vacant downtown Pawcatuck bank building
Stonington -- The recent good news for the revitalization of downtown Pawcatuck continues as a dental firm is seeking to open in the vacant Citizens Bank building at 46 W. Broad St.
Heartland Dental of Effingham, Ill., is seeking a zoning permit to change the use of the building and to enclose the canopy in the drive-through lane. The Planning and Zoning Commission is slated to consider the permit application at its meeting on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Mystic Middle School.
