Roanoke County Supervisors have cleared the way for another Chick-fil-A to come to the area.

On Tuesday, the supervisors approved a controversial motion, 3-2, to change restrictions to allow a restaurant on a piece of property near Bonsack.


Homeowners and business owners will get another chance to say how they feel about a new fast food restaurant in Roanoke County.

The Roanoke County Board of Supervisors will reconsider the construction of a Chick-fil-A on an empty lot located along US 460.

The Board denied a special use permit for Chick-fil-A back in June after people raised concerns over traffic.

Since the decision in June, the developer has been working with the Virginia Department of Transportation to see if they can change the layout to help ease traffic.

The owner of the cleaning business next door hopes the new plans will please everyone involved.

"I see both sides and if I lived right here I would have a concern,” said A Cleaner World president Mike Taylor. “But I think Chick-fil-A and Roanoke County and VDOT are working it out and it's taken a while and I think that's why it was voted down the first time because they didn't come to a good solution as to what to do with the traffic, but I think tonight will be different."

The public hearing is set to begin at 7 pm.
