The Framingham Planning Board will hold a public hearing tonight at 6:30, in the Blumer Room at the Memorial Building, to consider the application by Chalifoux Realty to construct a two-story Avidia Bank branch at 222 & 236 Cochituate Road.
Chalifoux Realty of Wellesley is requested special permits for the bank to have a drive-thru and a public way permit to develop the 24,000 square foot properties, on Route 30, near the intersection of Route 126.
A hair salon stood at one time on one of the two lots. The other is vacant.
In 2007, Avidia Bank was formed in 2007 when the Hudson Savings Bank and the Westborough Bank merged.
According to its website, Avidia Bank is a $1 billion mutual community bank headquartered in Hudson, with full-service branch offices in Hudson, Westborough, Clinton, Leominster, Marlborough, Northborough and Shrewsbury.
The website states the bank serves the financial needs of businesses, families and individuals in Central Massachusetts and beyond, through its branch network and its extensive investment in technology.
