Zaxby's to roost on 105
The Boone Board of Adjustment approved two variance requests
and a special use permit for a proposed Zaxby's restaurant on Thursday, according to Brenda Henson,
administrative support specialist for Boone Planning and Inspections.
The proposed restaurant would be placed at the intersection of State Farm Road and N.C. 105 Extension where Fruits, Veggies and More is currently located.
During the five-hour proceeding, Zaxby's representatives requested variances to reduce spacing requirements in between driveways and reduce the size of the landscape buffer between the proposed restaurant site and surrounding businesses, such as Farm Bureau Insurance.
The application for the special use permit, which was also approved by the board, was projected to address lighting, noise and other factors involved in the parcel falling within a transitional zone, near the Beverly Heights neighborhood.
According to Boone Planning and Inspections, an opening date has yet to be officially announced.
