Plans to convert a former supermarket building on Kenmore Avenue into self-storage facility are scheduled to go before the city Zoning Board 2 p.m. Wednesday in Room 901 of City Hall.

The one-time Budwey’s Store on Kenmore Avenue was sold in 2013 to Joe Dash, who planned to close his Hertel Avenue grocery store, then remodel the former Budwey’s store into a larger Dash’s market. But Hertel Avenue area residents didn’t want to see their neighborhood store shut down. Dash kept it open, but then scrapped his plan for the former Budwey’s building he had purchased. He closed the Kenmore Avenue store, and never reopened it. Now, Dash wants to convert the building into a self-storage center.
