Dublin Voters Say No To Drive-Thru

Hungry motorists in the Town of Dublin will need to get out of their vehicles for provisions. Residents rejected a proposed ballot measure on Tuesday that would have permitted commercial drive-thrus in certain zoned districts, on a vote of 339-222.

The town’s lone gas station at the intersection of Routes 101 and 137 is seeking to renovate its convenience store, and add a drive-thru window.

Opponents of the plan argued drive-thrus would change the character of the small town, and open the door to more commercial development.
