Placeholder Image
Residents in the area of Hardee’s came out in force Tuesday night to oppose the rezoning of its back parking lot from Residential-1 to Commercial-1.Hardee’s is looking to address longstanding traffic issue by demolishing its existing building and replacing it with one that’s better configured to accommodate more vehicles in its parking lot. However, in order to do that, the back parking lot would have to be rezoned from residential to commercial. The change would remove a three-decade agreement with the city that the property cannot be used as a drive-thru between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 p.m.John Douglass says his house on West Main Street is 12 to 15 feet from the parking lot and he needs the time restriction to remain in place and be enforced.
