The Brookfield Zoning Commission took up a proposed rule change on drive-thrus in the Town Center District on Thursday.
The Commission is looking into an application from the owner of Dunkin Donuts, to move down the road to the old Hearth Restaurant property. A hearing on the application was continued to November 29th. A decision must be made by December 13th, though 65 extension days are available.
The regional planning agency, the Western Connecticut Council of Governments has sent a letter opposed to the change saying that drive-through developments do not foster an active downtown. Brookfield is aiming to attract mixed-use developments in the Four Corners area by adding sidewalks and other amenities to the area.
