The drive-through restaurant building would be located on the southeast portion of the site and could accommodate 12 vehicles within the drive-through. The restaurant and retail/medical building would be located at the southwest portion of the site. New landscape is proposed throughout the site featuring new trees and planters. The project would also reconfigure the existing parking lot and proposes 92 parking spaces on-site and 12 parking space off-site, for a total of 104 spaces. As proposed the new buildings architectural style is modern with a variety of exterior material including wood siding, concrete, smooth stucco, brick and aluminum.
