EATONTOWN: Another Dunkin Donuts could soon join the borough's list of fast food restaurants.
A developer, 95 Hope Road Associates, LLC, has applied to the Eatontown Zoning Board of Adjustment to seek approval to build a Dunkin Donuts with a drive-thru on a 3.5-acre site on the corner of Wyckoff Road and Hope Road. Zoning board approval is necessary because fast food restaurants are not allowed in the zone.
The site was purchased by 95 Hope Road, LLC in 2007, and was zoned as PBO-200, which is a professional, business and office zone. In 2011, the borough council rezoned the site to PBO-88, which permits convenience stores and the owners eventually got permission to build one. However, the developers ultimately decided not to pursue the project.
