Suburban Plaza Starbucks variance approved

via Deanne, from the Cross-Neighborhoods Committee:

Starbucks is now clear to build a new shop with patio and drive-through in Suburban Plaza. The last hurdle was cleared on October 8, when the Zoning Board of Appeals approved a setback variance with no public opposition. Starbucks had successfully applied for a SLUP to allow a drive-through but a setback variance was required to allow pedestrian access through a sidewalk (to be built) along North Decatur Road.
"Shop J" marks the future location of Starbucks. "Tenant H" will be home to by LA Fitness.

The plan, mentioned in an earlier post, reflects what Commissioners and community had visualized through the Medline LCI Study: walkable businesses and community interaction.

The plan was approved with the conditions (see image to the left).
