      A Walgreen's wanted to open 4 blocks from my house with a drive-through.  It is a strip commercial shopping center with perhaps 15 small storefronts and a vacant site for a supermarket (closed because too small for current business model) otherwise in a residential area with a few office buildings nearby (fewer than 8).  They wanted to build a free-standing building on the corner of the parking lot.

      Their request for a drive-through open until midnight was denied, after their request for a 24 hour store with drive-through was denied.  They were allowed a drive-through-less building and required to close at 10 pm.

      I live the next town from Mountain View. I have been to the Sizzler that Chick-Fil-A had their eye on.  It's all of 2.5 miles from me.  There are apartments right next to it.

      Drive-throughs in residential areas are denied all the time.  There is no organized political opposition to Walgreen's that I know it.  There are objections to drive-throughs near where people live.

      In capitalist America, bank robs you!
