A new location of Chick-fil-A at 2700 N. Federal Highway in Boca Raton has nearby residents concerned that the proposed drive-thru restaurant will cause traffic and safety problems along Federal Highway.
The Chick-fil-A would replace the existing Best Western hotel, which would be demolished with three one-story buildings taking its place. Chick-fil-A would be located on the south end of the property and adjacent to the Harbor East residential community.
Sachs Sax Caplan Partner Larry Schner, who represents the Harbor East residents, cited problems at other Chick-fil-A locations: “It’s a situation which they can’t enforce in Broward County. It’s a situation which they can’t enforce in Delray. It’s a situation that spills into the community and spills into Federal Highway. The building of a Chick-fil-A in this area is not responsible.”
Despite the concerns, the planning and zoning board unanimously approved the project. The final decision, however, will rest with the City Council, which will vote on the matter later this year.
