Planning commissioners approved a significant development permit for a second Taco Bell in Siloam Springs during the planning commission meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 13.

The commissioners voted 6-0 to approve the permit with Commissioner Tom Montgomery absent. The permit will go before the city board Tuesday, Oct. 4.

If approved by the city board, the new Taco Bell will be located at 4171 Highway 412 East, next to the Jiffy Trip gas station, which is currently under construction.

According to Maegan Thomas, Planner 1, staff is recommending approval with one condition: the applicant shall acquire a cross access easement to allow access between Lot 2 to Lot 1 of the Rosewood Curve Addition prior to building permit issuance.

A staff report prepared by Senior Planner Ben Rhoads and Thomas states there is no evidence that the proposed Taco Bell will cause any substantial burden to the present uses around the area.

Traffic will slightly increase on Hwy 412 but not to beyond the design capacity of the highway, the report states. The addition of new vehicles will not increase the safety risk, the report states.

The site also has the advantage of being somewhat deep, allowing for considerable stacking space for the drive-through customers, the report states.

In addition the drive-through has a separate entry/exit point with the shared drive leading into Jiffy Trip to the east, the report states.

During the meeting, Rhoads introduced Thomas to the planning commission saying that she will now conduct the presentations to the planning commission. Thomas, who began her tenure with Siloam Springs in August, previously worked for the city of Tontitown, Rhoads said.
