Dunn Tire has received the final approvals the company needs for its new store planned for Sheridan Drive in Amherst. The town Planning Board last week approved the site plan for the store at 3424 Sheridan, just east of Sweet Home Road, which will take over space that now houses Color-Tech Photo Lab. And the town Zoning Board of Appeals on Tuesday approved a variance allowing Dunn Tire to build a parking lot with 28 instead of 30 spaces. The Town Board had previously rezoned the property.
A lengthy process meant to guide future growth and redevelopment in Amherst may reach a critical point at a special Planning Board meeting on Thursday, June 22. Board members will review proposed amendments to the town's comprehensive plan during a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at Amherst Town Hall, 5583 Main St., Williamsville. The amendments were developed as part of the Imagine Amherst planning process that seeks to reshape commercial centers in the town.
The company building the new Whole Foods Market in Amherst expects to finish construction by late August. Scott Finn, the project manager for Picone Construction Co., told The Buffalo News the company is on track to turn over the completed store to Whole Foods in the weeks before Labor Day. That is "pretty close" to the original construction timeline, Finn said in the first substantial update on the store's progress since January.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
