PEMBROKE — The Pembroke Town Council on Tuesday approved a site plan from Bojangles Restaurants Inc.
The fried chicken company wants to open a location next to Pizza Hut on West Third Street.
A condition of the plan requires the town to get an estimate from a contractor to build a retention wall for sewer drainage at the site. Bojangles will cover the cost of building the wall.
“We’re more than happy to work with the city and fund that work,” said Claude Clark, director of engineering and contraction of Bojangles’ Restaurants Inc.
Once completed, the restaurant will mark the third Bojangles location in Robeson County. The other two restaurants are located in Lumberton.
In other business, the council:
— Adopted a unified development ordinance presented by Holland Consulting. According to Landin Holland, most of the changes made to the preexisting ordinance were minor and pertained to “language and housekeeping”
— Set a public hearing date for the voluntary annexation request from the Lumbee Tribal Council for its Pembroke Senior Village project. The hearing will be held on Oct. 1, during the council’s next regular meeting.
