At right, you can see a rendering of what the new store will look like.
The whole proposal, which can be read here, includes an outdoor dining area, a clerestory, a cyclist rest stop area and an electric charge charging station. Right now, the public is invited to give comments and input on the proposal, fully available at the town hall.
The store, and outdoor dining area, will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The traffic impact report suggests that traffic will not make the intersection unmanageable. However, if a traffic signal is needed at the Center Boulevard and Pastori Avenue intersection in the future, Good Earth will be required to pay their share of that light.
The project will now go before the Fairfax Town Council at either the May 4 or June 1 meeting (check our What's on the Agenda posts to find out which meeting it'll be considered at) to approve the declaration as the next step in the review process. The public is invited to give their input. No construction will begin until a building permit is issued, but the new store is still scheduled to open around October of this year.
