Evergreen Subaru’s plans to turn the former Best Buy off Turner Street into its new space got the green light from the Auburn Planning Board in a 5-0 vote this week, according to city staff. The $2.8 million project needed a site amendment from the board to move ahead.

Michael Gotto of Stoneybrook Consultants told the board in a letter that Evergreen Subaru owner Doug Weisz hopes to have the building converted to a service area in May and to have the new showroom and site improvements finished by the end of the year.
