The design plans for the new In-N-Out Burger location in Novato passed muster with the city's Design Review Commission on Wednesday, clearing the way for arguably the most anticipated opening of a fast food restaurant in the city's history.
In-N-Out made some cosmetic changes to its initial proposal to build a new restaurant at Novato's Vintage Oaks Shopping Center, and the commission gave it the OK at Novato City Hall. The next step is obtaining a building permit and a demolition permit to knock down the closed-down Burger King at the site on 216 Vintage Way.
In-N-Out said it would move an outdoor dining area away from the drive-thru lane, realign a pathway to save an existing tulip tree, replace palm trees over the drive-thru lane with other trees, screen a trash receptacle enclosure with a bush and several other alterations. For the most part, it's going to look like most other In-N-Outs.
Are you excited?
