Daylight Donuts relocation plan endorsed by Zoning Board of Appeals

Plans for a Daylight Donuts shop at 1837 Broadway got the blessing of the Zoning Board of Appeals on Tuesday.

City Planner Chuck Bevelheimer said the Quincy City Council will have the final say on whether to reduce a setback requirement to five feet, from the usual 15 feet. If approved, the plan would allow the proposed doughnut shop to have a 21-foot, 7-inch wide drive-through lane as well as parking stalls in back, screened by a sight-proof fence.

Babbett Lock has confirmed plans to relocate Daylight Donuts from 2430 Broadway to the 1837 Broadway location, but she has preferred not to discuss details until the project is fully approved.

"The petitioner was there for the Zoning Board of Appeals meeting and did not indicate a time when the project might be complete, but was anxiously awaiting the approval," Bevelheimer said.

One neighbor did speak at the meeting. Mike Hummert of 433 N. 20th, wanted to see the alley in the block bounded by Broadway and Spring, 18th and 20th, operated as a one-way alley headed west.
