In addition to St. Anthony Catholic Church, the Fayetteville Planning Commission also granted site plan and construction approval to several other projects last week, including a 28-home subdivision expansion, the addition at Lincoln County High School, expansion of the former Buffalo Wild Wings’ location to accommodate Los Trojas, and a new restaurant, Rick’s Barbecue.
Brookstone Commons Phase II, a 28-home development in the area of Terry Addition, received site plan and construction approval Tuesday after submitting revised plans to city planners. The commission had asked in July that the developer, Hyde Homes, LLC, address a drainage issue, secure an engineer’s certification, and include with plans a map depicting area flood zones. Those revised plans were submitted Tuesday.
A 14-classroom STEM addition at Lincoln County High School also gained site plan and construction approval. Construction on the new wing, to be located in the area between Rice Theatre and the band rooms, is expected to get underway soon.
The owner of Los Trojas Mexican Restaurant in Fayetteville also gained construction approval for an addition and renovations at its future location, which will be in the former Buffalo Wild Wings’ building at 112 Redstone Dr., just off the Huntsville Highway.
Rick’s Barbecue, which has been operating a concessions trailer truck on a limited basis in Fayetteville, gained site plan and construction approval from planners as well. Construction is expected to soon begin on its restaurant at 1419 Huntsville Hwy.
In other business, two minor subdivisions of properties were also approved by planners, one for Donald Thornton and another for Greg Ellis.
Lenace Hyde Vaughn, a member of the city’s planning and codes’ staff, reported that the Walker Collaborative will be in Fayetteville Sept. 30 through Oct. 3 to finalize the Downtown Master Plan. That plan is expected to be presented to the community on the final day of the firm’s visit.
Five building permits were included in the building inspector’s report accepted by planners. Most notably, those included a self-serve ice machine at 1614 Huntsville Hwy. Total project valuation for all five permits amounted to $34,500.
