Guys lets stop the mud slinging we will have our time to explain ourselves. People are always going to have opinions, that's ok, like we said before we are happy to be a part of the community. All we care about is making our customers happy. Bringing people Family, Past, and Physical attributes will get us no where. It doesnt matter who is doing the complaining, or the accusing. It is what it is. There has been a issue, no one is getting special treatment trust me. Not us, and not any party against us. We trust Dracut to make the correct decision based on the facts, not hear say and rumors. SO To everyone showing support thank you so much, to everyone against us, we are sorry you feel that way and are that strongly against us. In closing we are a small establishment, we dont want to hurt the land or Dracut or anything like that. We are trying to make this area a little safer for pedestrians who are parking in this area. We had good intentions in mind when we did this. You cant make everyone happy though. SO sorry to anyone we have offended, or bothered, or hurt. We are an hard working establishment just trying to make a living. The past is the past, lets look towards making things work in the future! We are ecstatic to be a part of this community, thank you for reading!

The wetlands act is a joke. Get over it. The town is a dump and they only pull the wetlands card out on unconnected people. The entire area buffers wetlands yet the town does nothing to keep it clean. I love the conservation signs surrounded by trash. Maybe Mrs Cahill could lose a few lbs and get down there to clean it up. Or would that be a violation because trash was picked up in a wetlands area without permission? Maybe the DPW could help??? Dracut town officials are worthless.
the DPW director Buxton is too busy getting up on town meeting floor advocating for his buddies selectmen to get their stipends and health insurance

John Zimini was so quick to suck up to the neighbor,his friend Bob Corey, that he was ready to close down a Dracut business. FOR WHAT? John you are such a phony. Next week you will be blowing about how you are pro business. Remember the package store in Kenwood that you voted against allowing to move a few doors down? Any business owner in town who votes for you is nuts. They will all be reminded in May. Hey John why did you get fired???

The Wetlands Protection Act, affects any person proposing to “remove, dredge, fill, or alter any bank, fresh water wetland, coastal wetland, beach, dune, flat, marsh, meadow, or swamp bordering on the ocean or on any estuary (a broad mouth of a river into which the tide flows.), creek, river, stream, pond, or lake, or any land under said waters or any land subject to tidal action, coastal storm flowage, or flooding”.
In order to legally work in any wetland, THE PERSON/OWNER is the one that must obtain a permit known as an Order of Conditions from the local conservation commission.
To bad they weren't working in the wetlands. They removed trees, brush and trash from the wetland buffer zone.

I live 5 minutes away from Chubbys and LOVE having a restauraunt so close to home. Chubbys food is delicious!! I go with my family for breakfast every weekend! I know EXACTLY who caused a big fuss about this. Chubby's really didnt do anything wrong. You can't even ell they've done anything cross the street. If anything they CLEANED it up! THANK YOU CHUBBY'S! I think the Lowell Sun should do a write up about the NEIGHBOR who has been harassing ANY business that has ever gone in there. Why do businesses always fail there? Because the SAME people always harass them and cause problems for them. Call the police every chance they get. For someone that complains so much why don't they just move out! WHere do they get all those signs they put in front of there house? Must be stolen! maybe the police should look into the stolen signs! They say "they found the signs", where on the side of a street? yea, there supposed to be there! OBNOXIOUS people need to worry about taking care of their yard. Clean it up and help dracut look a little better! I hope Chubby's continue to do well and i hope the harassment stops! You dont want people parking in front of your house? Well maybe they should move. Let the people do there business! Lowell sun look into these people, go talk to all the previous owners and you'll get a good story on these quacks!

This article is absolutely ridiculous, my brother did nothing wrong. God forbid he cut down trees and take an old ugly fence down. If the wetlands are so important than why do people only bring them up when they want to bring someone down? It's not like he was killing off animals or anything... people need to calm down. If it's that big of a deal he can plant some replacement trees and call it a day.
Your brother HELPED by cleaning the land! Bob and Gay just love to complain! I worked for a previous owner in that restuaraunt and I knew Bob and Gay! All they do is give everyone hell to scare them away. "They can't see to back out of their drivewy because people's cars block the view". They are just miserable people who have nothing better to do and have spent their lives in that house making hell for anyone who trys to start a business there and try to give us a place close to home with delicious food! Maybe your brother should get the previous owners together and press HARASSMENT charges!
