Love Street in Jupiter: Sept. 7 is the final vote

See full story in The Palm Beach Post.

Remodeling has started to bring a new Dunkin’ Donuts to replace the former Wendy’s restaurant in Tequesta’s Countyline Plaza.

Muffins and coffee — plans call for a drive-through window — should start being served around the end of the year, says Trish Naya Norene, the executive director of  on the southwest corner of Countyline Road and U.S. 1.

 

The closest Dunkin’ Donuts on U.S. 1 to the north is at Bridge Road in Hobe Sound.

To the south, Dunkin’ coffee lovers have to go to Alternate A1A and Indiantown Road.

The plaza, which has about 1,400 parking spaces, also contains a Publix, Chase Bank, Time to Eat Diner and Rocky’s Hardware store.

Love Street plan up for review tonight in Jupiter

Two-acre Love Street property outlined in red

The Love Street development plan — this one without the boat slips for commercial fishing boats — is up for review today at 7 p.m. by the town’s planning and zoning board at the  Jupiter Community Center.

Click here to see the plan.

The town council, which must approve the final plan, is not bound by the planning board’s recommendation.

Opponents blast the Love Street plan, calling it “just another shopping center.”

“There’s not enough parking.” “The jobs it will create are low-paying.” “Pollution of the Jupiter Inlet will result,” they said. About 2,000 local residents signed an online petition opposing the development.

Developer Charles Modica has said the plan to be reviewed tonight, about a quarter the size of the original proposal, preserves the waterfront theme of the Inlet Village, the area along A1A from Beach Road north to U.S. 1.

The meeting is open to the public.

Current Love Street plan:

Property: 2 acres

Retail: 4,949 square feet

Office: 1,941

Outdoor Seating area: 1,781

Restaurant: 11,162

Total: 18,552  square feet
