JANESVILLE — A developer wants to build a CVS pharmacy in the Big Lots parking lot on Milton Avenue in Janesville.
The pharmacy would be located in the northeastern corner of Milton Avenue and Black Bridge Road.
The owner of the property, Johnson Acquisition Corp., will ask the Janesville City Plan Commission for conditional-use permits for a two-lane drive-through and for an electronic message center. It also needs a permit to share access to adjoining streets.
The plan commission will hold a public hearing on the development at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 18, in City Hall, 18 N. Jackson St.
The pharmacy would be 13,225 square feet and be located on 1.21 acres. The parcel would be created by dividing the western portion of the Big Lots/Planet Fitness site from the rest of the property. The site is now excess parking for the retail center.
A CVS pharmacy also is located at 1832 W. Court St.
The developer hopes to open the new store in early fall.
The developer this week plans to tear down the building that housed Cost Cutters, which was located next to Planet Fitness. Under the lease agreement with Planet Fitness, the developer must make room for more parking, said Gale Price in the city’s community development department.
Cost Cutters moved across Milton Avenue next to Walgreens.
