MEDINA – The plan for a new Dunkin’ Donuts in Medina will go before the Orleans County Planning Board on Thursday.

The board will review the site plan at 7 p.m. in the County Administration Building, and planners will make a recommendation whether Shelby town officials should approve a special use permit and variance for the project at 11378 Maple Ridge Rd.

The review by the county is needed before the Shelby Town Planning Board and also the Zoning Board of Appeals can give a final vote on the project.

JFJ Holdings of North Andover, Mass., is the developer for the project. The company is also working to build a Dunkin’ Donuts in Albion, right next to the Tim Hortons on Main Street.

County planners will look at two other projects on Thursday: an amendment to the Ridgeway zoning map to reclassify 11 Parcels on Ridge Road near Oregon Road from the Rural Residential District to Hamlet District, and an area variance, site plan review and special use permit for kennel in Kendall at 15705 Carr Rd.
