Brooklyn Park Looks to Reverse Drive-through Ordinance
Brooklyn Park has taken the first step toward amending a recent ordinance change regarding drive-throughs in the city.
In 2018 the Brooklyn Park City Council voted to rezone properties near the planned Metro Blue Line Extension light rail project. Part of that rezoning included a policy preventing any future drive-throughs.
But the owner of a building on Brooklyn Boulevard wants to change that. The building currently houses a Bakers Square Restaurant & Bakery. But the restaurant’s lease is set to expire and the owner wants to replace it with a different restaurant and a drive-through coffee shop.
The measure cleared the first hurdle this week at the city council meeting, but will require a second approval before it passes for good. One reason for the change is that the Blue Line project is currently stalled, and there is some question as to whether it will actually get built as planned.
