GENEVA – Aldermen approved an amendment to permitting Oberweis Dairy to the Fabyan Crossing Planned Unit Development to allow the company to construct and operate a sit-down and drive-thru restaurant without requiring it to secure a utility easement for redundant electric power.

Though aldermen had already approved the Oberweis proposal May 20 for Oberweis Ice Cream & Dairy Store, That Burger Joint and Woodgrain Pizza at the shopping center, located at the northwest corner of Fabyan Parkway and Randall Road, it was conditional on Oberweis fulfilling three conditions.

As Oberweis was unable to secure the easement for redundant electric power, aldermen approved a at the Nov. 18 City Council meeting as a new submission and request, officials said.

Oberweis’s plan is for a 4,256-square-foot restaurant with site improvements.

The city would prefer to have a looped electric system to provide backup power for the Fabyan Crossing out lots if the primary power supply should fail, Planning and Zoning Commission records show.

But the Fabyan Crossing Lot 5 owner would not provide an easement route for the redundant electric power between the proposed Oberweis project and an existing McDonald’s, officials said.

The redundant electric power source was to ensure continued electricity in case the primary electric feed should fail, officials said.
