A group of Mission Hill residents traveled to City Hall this morning to support a Dunkin' Donuts proposed for a long-vacant storefront across from the Roxbury Crossing T stop. But a neighborhood association and city officials oppose the shop because, they say, there are already enough places along Tremont Street to grab a cup of coffee.

The Boston Licensing Board decides tomorrow whether to let Joel and Janel Silveira open a new Dunkin' Donuts at 1447 Tremont St., in a space that has been vacant for ten years. The couple already own a Dunkin' Donuts franchise at the other end of the hill, at 1631 Tremont St. in Brigham Circle.
