Aiken City Council Will Consider Plans for New Taco Bell
A new Taco Bell may be coming to Whiskey Road in Aiken soon.
According to a report from the Aiken Standard, Aiken City Council will now consider at a city council meeting tonight the vote on a proposal to build the fast food chain restaurant on the property at 2205 Whiskey Rd, which the city council could annex into the city.
The Taco Bell would be located at the current StrikeHouse Bowl site.
The new Taco Bell would be 1,892 square-feet and will have new access points on Whiskey and Dougherty roads.
Two commissioners opposed the decision when it was proposed in August;
StrikeHouse Bowl owner Maryanne Budnichuk sold the property during an eminent domain dispute with the City of Aiken and the S.C. Department of Transportation regarding a piece of the property needed for the intersection improvement project.
The property is scheduled to close around Oct. 10. Two readings and a public hearing will be required before the restaurant is approved.
The city council meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Monday in Council Chambers of the Municipal Building, 214 Park Ave. S.W.
