The Home Depot located at 80 Buckland Hills Drive in town wants to change the color of its existing roof canopy from green to orange, to make the store more aligned with the company's brand.
In a letter to the town's Planning and Zoning Commission, which must approve the change, Senior Planner Renata Bertotti writes that the company wants to change the building's canopy from green to the "Home Depot signature orange" to better reflect the company's brand.
The Home Depot is the world's largest home improvement retailer, according to the company's website, with more than 2,200 retail locations in North America alone. The Home Depot's request appears on the agenda of the Monday, Dec. 3 meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission's agenda, scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Lincoln Center Hearing Room at 494 Main St.
According to the Manchester Planning Department, any addition to a building's approved plan that is not considered a "minor change," such as this, must be approved by a majority vote of the Planning and Zoning Commission, although Home Depot's request is not subject to a public hearing.
Also on the agenda for Monday's meeting is a public hearing on Walmart's application to build a second location in town at 205 Spencer Street.
