On Monday night, selectmen authorized First Selectman Mary Glassman to execute a reciprocal agreement between Big Y and World Skate, Inc. that should pave the way for the grocer to begin work at it planned 1313 Hompeadow St. site.
Big Y obtained approval for the store from the town’s zoning commission in September of 2012 but needed an expanded easement for access to the International Skating Center driveway, primarily for delivery trucks. The land in question is owned by the town but leased by the center.
Selectmen approved a resolution last August but the two parties failed to come to a final agreement, officials said. The town then threatened to make the road public via eminent domain, which got the two parties talking again, town officials said earlier this month.
At Monday's meeting Glassman said the two parties had not yet signed the agreement but said they would if the town approved it.
