Lincoln road upgrade: low-grade retail on way out?:

new ordinance would prohibit some establishments

Those giant t-shirt and souvenir stores – Alvin’s Island, Wings – on Lincoln Road won’t be getting any company if the Commission approves an ordinance to prohibit certain retail on the iconic street. Neither would CVS or Walgreens. The Planning Board gave a favorable recommendation to the ordinance which outlines new prohibited uses including check cashing stores, convenience stores, pharmacies, souvenir and t-shirt shops, tattoo studios, and fortune-tellers. These restrictions would join the already prohibited pawnshops, secondhand dealers of precious metals/precious metal dealers and accessory outdoor bar counters.
 
Lincoln Road is undergoing a transformation under a new Master Plan and, according to Planning Department staff, this ordinance is necessary to comply with the Master Plan and  “to ensure the integrity of Lincoln Road.”  The ordinance would only apply to new establishments.
