Livermore City Council set for final approval of Chick-fil-A

Popular eatery plans to build on parcel on North Livermore Avenue

Chick-fil-A will likely get approval Monday to spread its wings into North Livermore.

The Livermore City Council is set to give final approval for the popular Georgia-based eatery to build on a recently-annexed acre-and-a-half parcel on North Livermore Avenue near Interstate 580.

In exchange for what will certainly be long drive-thru lines, the city will receive the right to absorb the remaining 21.5 acres of the current areas as two parcels of open space. The 4,821-square-foot restaurant, its parking lot and dedicated landscaping will be re-zoned commercial from its current designation as open space.

Chick-fil-A would be responsible for frontage improvements along North Livermore Avenue, nearby stream bank stabilization, construction of a small portion of the Arroyo Las Positas trail along the south side of the project, and northbound left turn lane improvements at the intersection of North Livermore and Arroyo Plaza. They will also contribute $225,000 to future trail construction in the area.

A staff report recommends the city decline to take possessions of the open space until the Zone 7 water agency can accept responsibility for 21.5 acres.

Oh Boy, I hope the City of Livermore learns from the "screw-up" by Pleasanton where NOT to allow Chick-fil-A to open a new store, since the location in Pleasanton by Chick-fil-A created a nightmare of a traffic, etc.

Please put it in the middle of the San Francisco Premium Outlets of Livermore....please....I absolutely can't stand that
1. crappy marketing
2. traffic center nightmare. I rarely drive through there, but the few times I have the red light traffic runners are out of control.

Would love to see that blow up even more with a chik filet in the middle of it.
