A Starbucks coffee outlet has been proposed for property adjacent to the Roth’s market on North First Street in Silverton.

The property is owned by the Roth family, with the site located south of the market parking lot and bounded by North First, North Second and D Street.

The proposal, if approved by the city, calls for development in two phases, with the Starbucks piece coming first. The Starbucks is planned for the section of the property fronting North First, directly across from the BrucePac plant. The coffee shop would have a drive-through lane, with vehicle access coming from the Roth’s lot and a new driveway on D Street.

A second building would be constructed later on the north side of the building, but it’s unclear at this point what the use would be.

The new development would be served by an internal parking lot that would have a connection to the Roth’s lot.

A conditional use permit is required before the project can go forward, and the Silverton Planning Commission has scheduled a 7 p.m. public hearing for Tuesday, Feb. 11 in the Council Chambers at 421 S. Water St. to consider the application.

Those wishing to comment on the project can do so during the public testimony period of the hearing or by emailing Community Development Director Jason Gottgetreu at jgottgetreu@silverton.or.us.
