Bartlett trustees will consider approval Oct. 17 of a four-tenant commercial building that would include a drive-through and outdoor seating for a coffee shop just south of the Mobil gas station on the southwest corner of Route 59 and Stearns Road.

The 8,200-square-foot retail building would lie on a 0.91-acre lot being subdivided from the Home Depot property at 950 Route 59.

An architectural drawing identifies the building's four spaces as a coffee shop, a boutique and two stores but doesn't name any specific tenants or companies.

The proposal seeks a special-use permit for outdoor seating for 12 people and a 3-foot fence to separate the seating area from the parking lot and drive-through.

The parking lot would have 55 spaces, including three that are handicapped-accessible, exceeding the minimum requirement of 48.

Though the outlot development would reduce the parking spaces available for Home Depot, a traffic impact analysis estimated a surplus of parking would remain for the home-improvement retailer.

Bartlett's zoning board of appeals and plan commission both unanimously recommended the project last month.

Village board members got their own first look at the proposal at their committee of the whole meeting Tuesday and are scheduled to vote on final approval at 7 p.m. Oct. 17 at village hall, 228 S. Main St.
