Danbury Planners to consider fast food restaurant applications

The Danbury Planning Commission is meeting tonight and could approve plans for a fast food restaurant and medical office to replace the Pier 1 Imports at the corner of Sugar Hollow Road and Backus Avenue.  A drive-thru Chipotle restaurant is looking to add another location in the City.  The old building would be demolished and replaced with a one-story mixed use building about half the size.  Planning officials say the expected peak traffic to the site would not create conditions adversely affecting traffic safety or cause undue congestion.  The developer agreed to pay 25-thousand dollars to the City so Danbury can purchase and install video camera detection equipment for the traffic signals.


The Planning Commission will also consider an application for a stand-alone Panera Café building with a drive-thru at The Shops at Marcus Dairy.  A public hearing will be scheduled for November 16th.  The Commission will also schedule a hearing on an application by Border LLC and The Botanist to become a hybrid cannabis retailer.  The Botanist is currently operating as a medicinal marijuana dispensary on Mill Plain Road.  The Public Hearing will be scheduled for December 7th.
