Yet another Dunkin' Donuts may hit town

A fifth Dunkin' Donuts may be coming to New Milford.

A site plan is before the town's Zoning Commission to demolish the present circa 1900 building at the corner of Dodd Road and Danbury Road (Route 7 South) and construct a 1,765-square-foot, fast-food restaurant with drive-through window.

The plans are stamped "Dunkin' Brands" and indicate an 18-seat Dunkin' Donuts restaurant would be constructed on the site.

The restaurant driveway would be from Dodd Road with drive-through window traffic entering and exiting there. There would be 18 parking spaces, including one handicap parking space.

The present 3,600-square-foot, red structure now houses three retail businesses. It has been renovated over the years.

If approved, this would be the fifth Dunkin' Donuts location in the town.

There is a restaurant on Park Lane Road (Route 202); a counter in the Citgo station along East Street; a restaurant on Danbury Road near Veterans Memorial Bridge; and another south on Danbury Road near Larson Road.

A public hearing before the Zoning Commission on the application is scheduled March 25 at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
