A drive-thru at a Starbucks under construction in Newtown has been approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission. The group unanimously approved the modified special zoning permit for the planned service window at 75 Church Hill Road. Eateries in Newtown aren't normally zoned for drive-thrus, though there is one pre-existing. Plans for signage included a drawing with outdoor seating in front of the store, but the proposal was not part of the application to the Planning and Zoning Commission. If outdoor seating is actually planned, Starbucks would have to go back to the Commission for approval.
