Private pharmacy in Wiscasset gets nod

Wiscasset’s planning board Monday night approved a pharmacy that will serve Wiscasset Family Health at 35 Water St.

According to a letter from Lincoln County Regional Planning Commission’s Emily Rabbe to the board, only interior changes were proposed; applicant Genoa Healthcare operates 692 pharmacies in 47 states, including five in Maine; no changes were needed in utilities; and an architect for Sewall of Portland found the pharmacy would not significantly impact parking demand or traffic.

Earlier this month, a Genoa representative told the board, given the street frontage, Genoa “would be interested in considering” having the pharmacy also serve the general public.
