Second Dutch Bros. in Elk Grove Approved by City Council

May 12, 2016 |

Devotees of Dutch Bros. will undoubtedly be raising their coffee-based drinks to cheer the opening of another location of the popular outlet in Elk Grove.

At last night's Elk Grove City Council meeting an application to build a new location was unanimously approved. The new branch of the drive-thru coffee-based beverage purveyor will be located on the northwest corner of  Elk Grove-Florin and Sheldon roads in the Sheldon Crossing strip center. 

The matter was heard by the city council because conditions placed on the shopping center when it was built in 2004 stipulated that any drive-thru facility be approved by the council. Additionally, because the operation is within 1,000 of the city's rural area, council approval was required.

During public comment Elk Grove rural resident Shirley Peters said that while she did not personally support it, her fellow members of the Greater Sheldon Road Estates Homeowners Association (GRESHA) were unopposed. 

"I brought this before our GRESHA group and they felt it would be OK," Peters said. "I didn't."

Peters went on say that although he was not in support of the project, she appreciated the questions from council member about lighting, traffic, and landscaping for the project.

The project was approved by the Elk Grove Planning Commission at their April 6 meeting. The plans approved by the city council reflected the planning commissions recommend changes to 800 sq. ft. drive-thru structure to match the exterior colors of the other structures in the strip center.

No construction start date was announced at the meeting.
