Board of Adjustments approves Zaxby’s permit

Board of Adjustments approves  Zaxby’s permit

The Boone Board of Adjustments approved a special-use permit and two variance requests

Thursday that allowed for a proposed Zaxby’s restaurant to come to Boone, Planner Christy Turner said.

The location is set for the corner of State Farm Road and N.C. Highway 105 Extension, where Fruits, Veggies and More is currently.

A special-use permit was required because the location is in a transitional zone within 150 feet of a residential neighborhood, Turner said. The permit requires the business to mitigate lighting and noise to limit any effect on the nearby neighborhood.

The variance requests approved addressed a need for reducing the width of driveways to allow for customer and delivery entrances to the restaurant and a reduction of the landscape buffer from 10 to five feet, Turner said.

No opening date for the restaurant has been set.

The next closest Zaxby’s restaurant is more than 40 miles away in Elizabethton, Tenn., according to Zaxbys.com.

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
