Re: Proposed Starbucks Drive-Through at 4700 Ridge Road
At the Oakley Community Council (OCC) meeting on January 2, 2018, Jerry Royce of Brandicorp presented a proposed development of a Starbucks for the real property located at 4700 Ridge Road (the “Site”). The proposal included the demolition of a house and the construction of new Starbucks drive-through location. Mr. Royce requested a letter of no objection from the OCC Board of Trustees for conditional use of a corner lot for a drive-through and three variances: (i) special exception from the setback requirements from each of Ridge Road and Ibsen Avenue, (ii) special exception for front-yard parking, and (iii) special exception from the 3’ buffer requirement between the parking lot and lot lines. The OCC Board voted, with 8 in favor, 2 opposed and 1 abstained, to provide a letter of no objection regarding the requested conditional use and variances.
By this letter, the OCC Board hereby states no objection to the proposed development of the Starbucks drive-through on the Site, as presented to the OCC on January 2, 2018, including the requested conditional use and variances stated above, subject to consideration of adding “OAKLEY” to the monument sign depicted in the presentation.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
