The Brookfield Zoning Commission has approved regulations on drive-thrus. Developers would have to apply for a special permit if they want to locate in the Town Center area. The issue was raised after the owner of a Dunkin Donuts franchise wanted to move down Federal Road to the former Hearth Restaurant property. During the public hearings, there were some concerns that this would discourage people from walking around the area, which is currently undergoing a streetscape project to make the Four Corners area more pedestrian friendly. The regulations require drive-thrus to be south of the intersection of Federal Road and Route 25.
