This week the Livermore Chick-fil-A received final approval from the city council.
I first found out about the planned location back in February 2018 and it has taken this long to get final approval.
This post is a rewrite of the post I wrote back then.
Back in 2018 the planning committee was given approval from the Livermore City Council to work with Chick-fil-A. They had to initiate the annexation process as the location of the restaurant was outside the city limits of Livermore in Alameda County.
In the Google map above you can see a red ‘x’. This is at the edge of the land where the Chick-fil-A will be built. Just north of the Jack In The Box on North Livermore.
This is from 2018: It will be interesting to see the propose site plan once it goes before the Livermore City Council for approval later this year. I would imagine the Chick-fil-A will be inside the red circle as there is a large drop off to the creek bed.
The plan is for Chick-fil-A to buy a little more than 20 acres between the interstate and the buildings and donate it as open space. They will only use a small portion along North Livermore Avenue.
I plan on looking at the Livermore City Council website to see if they have a site plan in the documents for the council meeting.
There is also a scenic trail that will be extended as part of the development agreement. It currently ends to the west of the site and continues to the east near the Wal-Mart.
On the way home from work when I wrote this back in 2018 I stopped to take a picture of the site. Here you can see that it is overgrown a bit, but greening up with the winter rains. With all the green grass you can tell that it is near the end of the rainy season.
It will be nice to have the Chick-fil-A on the route home. It is usually where traffic starts to back up, so if traffic is really bad it will be tempting to exit for an early dinner while traffic clears up. I could also go through the drive-through and pick up some chicken fingers which would be easy to eat while driving.
Just across the street there is an In-N-Out. There is also an In-N-Out across the street from where the Manteca Chick-fil-A was built.
At the time I wrote the post back in 2018 there was a possibility that it could have been built before the one in Manteca. However, with the delays in approval the Manteca one was finished first and opened during the lock down.
Will the Livermore location be The Closest Chick-fil-A to my home? Even though this site in Livermore is on my way home, the one in Manteca will remain the closest.
Now to start watching for construction to start.
