EDMOND — Sara Sara Cupcakes is coming to Edmond after the city council's approval of the commercial site plan for the business.
The cupcake bakery is expected to open in a renovated house at 17 E Fifth St.
This is the second location in Edmond where owners of the cupcake business have tried to get approval.
Council members a year ago denied a request for the cupcake bakery at 235 W Hurd. Nearby property owners opposed the move because of the possibility of increased traffic.
The new location is a 1,400-square-foot house in the Central Business District area.
The unanimous vote came with opposition from businessman Mark Neighbors, who owns the majority of the nearby property along Fifth Street.
Neighbors said he was concerned because the bakery property was not large enough to include streetscape requirements of lighting, parking and landscaping.
