Council OKs Taco Bell despite neighborhood opposition

April 13, 2011

The vast majority of more than 100 people crowded into the Common Council Chambers Tuesday night left disappointed after the Council upheld the Plan Commission's decision to allow a Taco Bell restaurant with a drive-through window at 11511 and 11525 N. Port Washington Road.

The restaurant will be a tenant in a multi-tenant strip mall that will be built at the site.

Opponents of the plan outnumbered proponents by at least a 4-to-1, but their arguments that the restaurant would change the neighboring subdivisions failed to sway a majority of the council.

The council deadlocked at 4-4, but Mayor Curt Gielow broke the impasse, voting to allow Taco Bell to move ahead, with the provision that developer Andrew Petzold work with staff to remove a driveway on Homestead Trail.
