The Domino’s Pizza location on Freret Street plans to expand its kitchen space and add two tables for outdoor dining, based on a request the City Planning Commission will hear Tuesday afternoon.
Specifically, Domino’s wants to add a walk-in cooler along the back wall that will free up more space inside the kitchen, and place two tables in the grassy area in front of the store, according to the report compiled by City Planning Commission staffers. No other dining space will be created, the report states, and the planning staff recommends approval of the request.
“As minor physical modifications to the site will not significantly alter the restaurant’s operational characteristics, the expansion of the restaurant should have no impact on nearby properties,” the staff writes. The report concludes: “In fact, the presence of the exterior tables may positively affect the Freret Street commercial corridor, as they would support increased pedestrian activity.”
The planning commission meets at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday (July 10) at City Hall. No other Uptown properties are on the agenda.
