An unappealing appeal

Chick-Fil-A will appeal last week’s Design Review Committee decision to not allow the company to construct a freestanding restaurant and drive through on the corner of 20th Street and Highland Avenue South in Five Points. The City must convene a special Board of Appeals to hear the case. You can see the Birmingham Business Journal story here.

We will post more when we hear more. Stay tuned.

    How much will this cost the financially strapped City of Birmingham, and/or the public?

    Why can’t they build where Courtney’s is?

    Better yet, isn’t there an abandoned Citgo on 14th Street, on a busy corner just off the interstate exit ramp? Am I missing something (beyond a love of capitalism)?

    • I’m afraid the answer on the site is: it’s next to a CVS. One of the highest priorities of new Walgreen’s (and I assume vice versa) is to locate as close as possible to a competitor. Just what we need, huh?

  3. I’ve tried to summarize a little bit of description from the 1964 Birmingham City Code.
