The original deadline to have a CVS Pharmacy open in St. Joseph by November now appears to be a longshot. The city's Planning Commission was to hold a public hearing on the proposed Planned Unit Development on June 5, but a clerical mistake has forced that to be canceled and pushed back. WSJM News has learned the city did not send out notices of the hearing to properties on the east side of Niles Avenue that could be impacted by the proposed development at Niles and Napier. By law, those notices need to be sent out at 15 days before the hearing. The public hearing has not yet been rescheduled. Developers want to build a CVS where Florin Funeral Home now stands, as Florin plans to close that facility this summer and relocate. Neighbors have objected for months to the idea, but a new plan has been developed that backers say address many of the complaints and concerns of those who live in the immediate vicinity. The next St. Joseph Planning Commission when a public hearing on CVS is possible is scheduled for July 3.
