Ehamp Stop and Shop Project Heads Back to Court

The Easthampton Stop and Shop project heads to court again in a few weeks.  A hearing is set for May 18th on the last count standing in a lawsuit against a new supermarket on Route 10.  The suit filed by the owner of Cernak Buick across the street from the site claims the Easthampton Planning Board decision to approve the store violates the city’s zoning ordinance on traffic flow.  The case has been in the courts for three years.
