Agenda includes helicopter landing pad in Medina and addition for RS Automation in Albion

ALBION – The Orleans County Planning Board will review the site plan for a new Dunkin’ Donuts on Thursday, one of the last hurdles for the company to knock down a warehouse and build a new site on Main Street in Albion.

If county planners approve the project, Dunkin’ still needs a final vote from the Village of Albion Planning Board. That vote is scheduled for 7 p.m. Oct. 2 at Village Hall on East Bank Street.

Dunkin’ wants to begin demolition in October and have the shell of the new building up soon after. The company is eyeing a January opening for the new store.

County planners will review the site plan at 7 p.m. in Conference Room C of the County Administration Building, 14016 Route 31 West, Albion.

Dunkin’ wants to remove a warehouse between Tim Hortons and the railroad tracks. The store would be 2,000 square feet with 46 parking spaces. There would be a drive-through and driveways on both Main and Platt streets.

The property is at 153 South Main St. in the General Commercial District.

The Orleans County Planning Board will consider two other projects at its Sept. 26 meeting, including site plan review for a helicopter land pad and access drive on Ohio Street in Medina. That will be near Medina Memorial Hospital in the Single-Family District and Medical Services Overlay District.

Planners will also weigh in on the site plan for a detached storage building in the town of Albion at 4015 Oak Orchard Rd. The building in the Light Industrial District will be next to RS Automation, which is owned by Rick Stacey.
