5 Points Association issues statement opposing fast food restaurant’s location
Statement below from Five Points Association
The Five Points Association is opposed to the recent application made requesting a special exception for a fast food drive-thru (reported to be a Zaxby’s) in lower Five Points. This possibility will lead to a tipping point in the history of Five Points – a significant head nod to how Five Points will develop in the future.
A fast food drive-thru, and the traffic it creates, would have a major impact on the context and feel of this historic, neighborhood village. By introducing a fast food drive-thru in lower Five Points, Five Points would be moving away from the Future Five Master Plan and Design Overlay, which was endorsed and implemented by City Council in August 2006.
