The Edmond Planning Commission approved the site plan 5-0 Tuesday evening for Del Taco restaurant that is proposed for the southeast corner of East Second Street and Waterwood Parkway.

Applicant Bill Stubbs and Company would like to construct a new building at the site of Alvarado’s Mexican Restaurant, said Bob Schiermeyer, city planner.

Alvarado’s owner Carlos Alvarado told The Edmond Sun on Wednesday that he has a contingency plan to relocate his restaurant to a new location in Edmond. A deal has not been finalized with Del Taco, he said. So it’s too early for Alvarado to formally announce his business plans, he added.

The site plan includes a new 2,720-square-foot building on the site that is approximately 150 feet by 170 feet in size, Schiermeyer said. One 20-foot-ground sign will be set back out of the 20-foot easement including the overhang of the sign.

The 25-foot-tall building will have small brick wainscot on the front and east sides of the building, Schiermeyer said. A drive-through window will be on the east side of Del Taco.

A variance for the right-of-way easement along the front of the property has already been approved by the City Council, said Steve Manek, city engineer.

The existing driveway and entrance will remain as designed with no left turns in to this site westbound on Second Street, Schiermeyer said.

Action on the site plan stops at the Planning Commission, said Barry Moore, chairman.
