McAlister's Deli Plan

The site plan for the new McAlister's Deli stirred up some controversy at the last city council meeting, due to the placement of the handicapped parking spaces. If you scroll down to the bottom of the plan, you will see the handicapped parking spaces are placed right along the frontage road, so anyone backing out of them will back right into traffic.  That frontage road gets rather congested, especially towards the east of the Deli location, with McDonald's and Arby's both located there and council members forsaw an increased potential for accidents there, especially as handicapped designated vehicles tend to back out slowly.   Council wound up approving the site but it was 5 to 2 if I recall correctly.


  1. That's going to be a boggle. It's already a pain in the rear at the Taco Bell/McDonald's intersection.

  2. Agreed. Would have been far better to set it back, with all the parking off the road, like the Mattress Firm nee Blockbuster's is.
