ARB Okays Change for Cozzy’s

KENT—In a brief meeting Oct. 3, the Architectural Review Board agreed that a small chimney could be removed from the building that formerly housed Kent Wine and Spirits on Main Street.

Owner Katie Moore told the board that Cozzy’s restaurant is going to move into the site and removal of the chimney will allow more space for the business.  

“He is in the process of redoing the inside of the building,” Moore told the board members, adding that the chimney is no longer needed because a heat pump is now used. “We thought if we could do remove the chimney, it would create more space inside.”

The chimney is barely visible from the front of the building. 

Moore said Cozzy’s will probably open in its new space in mid-November. It sits on the same parcel as The Villager restaurant but will not compete in its menu offerings. “He’s going to continue with pizzas but will perhaps move toward Mediterranean food.”

Moore, co-owner of the building, said she is considering creating outdoor eating space, but “that will be another application.” If a space were to be created, it would be in character with the rest of the town, she said.
