The Planning Commission has given the thumbs up to an application that could bring Leesburg its second Chick-fil-A restaurant.
The commission voted 5-0-2, with commissioners Ad Barnes and David Faliskie absent, to recommend approval of a proffer and concept plan amendment and special exceptions to permit construction of two drive-through restaurants at the intersection of Miller Drive and Battlefield Parkway in the Oaklawn neighborhood. One of the restaurants will be a Chick-fil-A, while the other drive-through establishment is not yet known.
The application now heads to the Town Council for final review on Jan. 8.
The other item on the commission’s docket Dec. 6 was to modify a prior approval to accommodate a CVS Pharmacy with a drive-through, in addition to more than 14,000 square feet of other retail and restaurant uses, on vacant land near the intersection of Greenway Drive and Rt. 15. That application will come back to the commission for further discussion at the commission’s Dec. 20 meeting.
