FAIR LAWN - While the Maple Avenue Dunkin' Donuts held its grand opening on Aug. 4, another new location of the coffee and donut shop is seeking a use variance to open a drive-thru on River Road.
The Zoning Board of Adjustment special meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 10.
The borough does not allow drive-thru restaurants by ordinance. Also, it does not allow fast food restaurants in the B-4 zone where it is proposed.
The new proposed location, 12-01 River Road, if successful, will replace a vacant bank.
Additionally, the applicants, MO Donuts, Inc. doing business as Dunkin' Donuts, is requesting sign variances for the number of signs, sign height and a sign to replace an existing sign for setback from curb.
There are waiver requests for existing conditions, including parking in front or side yard of building where parking exists, a buffer required where none exist and any other variances and/or waivers that may be required for this application.
