Township Manager Bill Cargo said the board received a recommendation for approval from the township's Planning Commission.
With Monday's final approval, Meijer can now begin installing a pharmacy drive-through window near the southwest corner of the store. The drive-through will utilize a vacuum tube system to send prescriptions from the store to a customer's car.
“They’ve set it up much like a drive-through bank so people can go through it without going against traffic,” Cargo said.
Once it's in operation, customers will drive north into the pharmacy area, near the current entrance to the store’s garden center.
Meijer real estate manager Roger DeHoek said they also plan alterations to the garden center, including moving its entrance. There will also be barriers in place to separate the pharmacy drive-through lane from pedestrians entering the store.
“We will be putting a fence between the drive-through lane and the garden center,” DeHoek said.
The retailer will likely wait until later this year to get started on the project, DeHoek said.
