Starbucks OK’d for new shop

Birmingham Township supervisors granted conditional use approval to Starbucks for a new site in the township. That new location will be in the old bank building near Freddy's on Route 202 at Old Wilmington Pike.

Attorney Lou Colagreco, representing the applicant, said the new place would replace the current shop in the Shops at Dilworthtown Crossing. However, he didn't know how long it would take to make the change.

The conditional use hearing was in October and the approval granted during the Nov. 6 Board of Supervisors meeting. Conditions include limiting deliveries to the hours between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.; no outdoor seating without further conditional use approval; installation of No Thru Traffic signs and the installation and maintenance of crosswalks and speed tables.

Other business

The board accepted recommendations from the Historical Commission that establish categories and criteria for preserving historic properties. A property would become eligible for consideration if it's at least 50 years old, is associated with an event or person of historic significance and otherwise eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.

Those recommendations are to be used to create new ordinances. However, solicitor Kristin Camp said the process to develop those ordinances would take time and likely not happen before February.
