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.
