Rezoning is required if the business is to demolish the existing building and replace it with one that’s better configured to address traffic and noise concerns.McMinnville officials accepted the offer and unanimously approved the measure to rezone the restaurant’s back parking lot. Voting in favor were Mayor Jimmy Haley, Vice Mayor Ben Newman, and Aldermen Everett Brock, Mike Neal, Steve Harvey, Ryle Chastain and Jimmy Bonner.City Planning and Zoning director Nolan Ming presented board members with a revised proposal from Hardee’s.“Hardee’s has taken all the neighbors’ input into consideration from the last meeting,” said Ming.
