CHA submitted this “concept plan” to the Village of Albion for a Dunkin’ Donuts on Main Street, between the railroad tracks and Tim Hortons.

ALBION – A proposal for a new Dunkin’ Donuts in Albion would have access for motorists on both Main and Platt streets, helping to ease congestion on Route 98, village officials said.

Dunkin’ hasn’t submitted a formal plan to the village yet. The coffee and baked goods franchise has hired the CHA firm for engineering and design of the Albion site.

CHA and Dunkin’ expect to have a formal site plan submitted to the village in August.

Dunkin’ wants to demolish a warehouse next to Tim Hortons in Albion for the new store. The concept plan shows about 40 parking spaces at the site.

The warehouse is owned by Charles Breuilly. The building occupies almost the entire property. The Dunkin’ plan would add green space to the site, improving runoff and water quality, said Village Code Enforcement Officer Ron Vendetti.
