LANCASTER — Plans for a coffee shop at 212 Main St. have been resubmitted. Developer Zack Colby is seeking site plan approval to build a 2,720-square-foot commercial building and 612-square-foot patio on a .37-acre vacant lot. Driveway access would be on Grove Street. Colby plans to operate a 30-seat restaurant on the site, with 16 parking spaces and a pre-order, pick-up-only drive-thru lane. Colby originally proposed the project in June 2022 but withdrew the permit application in the face of neighborhood opposition. More than a year later, the project is back under consideration. The Planning Board on Dec. 13 accepted the project application as complete and waived a wetlands delineation plan requirement. However, the board denied a request to waive a two-meeting requirement for a major site plan review and scheduled a public hearing for Jan. 10.
