The developer of Union Street Plaza, in Auburn will ask for Planning Board’s permission Tuesday to amend its site plan in a way that could allow an office supply store next to Rite Aid. The requested revision is the only project scheduled to be reviewed by the Planning Board at its 7 p.m. meeting at the City Building. The Timone Company would like to revise its original plan to construct three buildings and build just one 23,480-square-foot building to house an Office Max discount office supplies store. The plaza already includes an 11.000-square-foot Rite Aid pharmacy.
