From staff reports

The final site plan for the proposed Dunkin’ Donuts on Ehringhaus Street has been approved by the planning department staff, City Manager Rich Olson said.

The store will be built at 1510 W. Ehringhaus Street, former site of Southeastern Pool, Olson said in his weekly FYI message.

It will be a 2,100-square-foot building with both inside dining and a drive-thru pickup. Access will be from Garden Street.

“Staff hopes to see this site under construction in the near future,” Olson said.

In another matter, the city’s Technical Review Committee reviewed a site plan for the 16,749-square-foot expansion of Forest Park Church. An addition will be built at the rear of the existing structure, increasing the number of parking spaces from 91 to 198.

The TRC approved the site plan with some minor modifications, Olson said.

Just now in

Just now in, the police department just annouced due to mold problems will move the police station to 1511 W. Ehringhaus Street,

just now

George, 1511 W. EHRINGHAUS IS THE CHKD THRIFT STORE! 1503 Sears, 1505 Little Caesars, 1515 Food Lion, 1501 the former Family Dollar (now vacant store space). Dunkin Doughnuts will occupy the former Southeastern Pools site (1510 W. Ehringhaus). That thrift shop at 1511 people buy lots of stuff there and it's possibly the largest thrift shop in the city and it's cleaner and cheaper than another thrift shop (name not mentioned).

Reread the story good fellow.

Reread the story good fellow. I should have put 1512 W. Ehringhaus Street for joke sticklers.

reread the story

"Ha,ha" George, April Fools' Day (April 1st) was three months ago (it's now July 1st). 1512 W. Ehringhaus doesn't exist. You should be a comedian or work for the supermarket tabloids or TMZ if you want to be snarky or should we call you "the Joker".

Oh bother.

Oh bother.

And Where Are Krispy Kreme's HQs?

I think its pretty ironic that a donut chain from the New England area (and a great one at that!) is coming to Elizabeth City, especially since Krispy Kreme Donuts has their headquarters in our fair state, but has never bothered to open a shop here! There's a similar situation with Bank of America...no local branch, but HQ in North Carolina. I guess northeast NC is invisible to these corporate giants. :-)

Krispie Kreme's

Have you seen the prices for a box of Krispy Kreme donuts in stores. The nearest Krispy Kreme chain store is in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.

FYI

There's a Bank of America branch located in Edenton, NC. Unless you don't consider Edenton a bona-fide city in the state of NC!?

That branch closed 4 years ago.

The original commenter is correct. The BAC Edenton branch closed in 2010. The only thing left is the ATM in the parking lot. If BAC customers want to do in-person business they must travel either to Chesapeake or KDH.

Remember

"America runs on Dunkin'", and now we won't have to run all the way to Chesapeake or Grandy for full counter service!

THE BACKROOM HAND OF GOVERNMENT

The story reads: Dunkin’ Donuts on Ehringhaus Street has been approved by the planning department staff, City Manager Rich Olson said. Staff hopes to see this site under construction in the near future,” Olson said. Now that is good news. But when does the Planning Department "approve" or should it read "recommend" approval to the council? Does that task not fall under the duties of the council? And is it staff's role in such matters to "hope" a private commercial venture gets underway soon? Sweetness to you.

As long as the zoning is correct and a special use permit isn't required, I don't believe this goes to council.

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!

Donuts! Donuts! Fresh donuts are coming!!!!!!!!!!!

Donuts

So sorry to tell you, but the donuts are brought in at night to sell in the morning so made days before they are sold. So grocery store donuts are probably fresher. So give up the thought of fresh donuts. Yes I am sure you will investigate.

Not necessarily so

Please give proof to your comment about them being 'days old'.

proof

Only proof I have is that I work there and see the night "fresh" donuts delivered at 10 pm prior to next business day. So, you do the math on how old they may be.

So.

So. So. So. Yes. Mmmmmmm, looks like the So's have it.

Haha! So what? HaHaHa!

Haha! So what? HaHaHa! Thank you.
