Several weeks of rumors about the relocation of a Main Street drug store and bank were confirmed Monday at a meeting in the Municipal Center.

But exactly where they will relocate was not made public.

While most of the meeting Monday was behind closed doors, the public was admitted for a while to learn that Rite Aid Drugs plans to relocate from the Main Street Mall to a new building.

First Tier Bank, which has a separate building on Main Street, also wants to move to a new facility.

Representatives from both businesses outlined their plans behind closed doors to Mayor Rosie Hoag, the City Council, and members of the city Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals.

Exact details of the site being sought in the vicinity of Main and Broad Street were not made public.

Representatives said their businesses will be working with the city to develop plans in line with city rules. A six-month moratorium on new use variance or rezoning applications was adopted last week by the City Council.

Developers will send more information to the Planning Commission, which meets on Thursday.
