SPOKANE, Wash. – Chicken lovers are a little closer to being able to enjoy Chick-fil-A sandwiches right here in Spokane.
According to documents on the City of Spokane website, the planning director has issued a letter of approval for the chicken chain to go ahead with the construction of a restaurant at 9204 N. Newport Highway.
The preliminary building permits indicate that the plot will be divided in two; one will be used for Chick-fil-A and the other will remain open for future development.
According to the proposal, the developer hopes to build a new 4,833-square-foot building with 96 indoor seats, 16 patio seats, a play area, and a dual-drive lane that can accommodate up to 28 vehicles. Those using the drive-thru will have two ways to access the restaurant from E. Hoerner St.
The new documents come in the midst of a multi-year saga with Chick-fil-A. Despite filing documents with the city of Spokane, the restaurant chain’s press officials are declining to comment on their potential construction plans.
In December, rumors began to spread across northern Idaho about a potential location in Hayden. A “Coming Soon” sign appeared on a vacant lot on Government Way, but Hayden’s director of community development said no permits had been filed and she thought the ordeal was a joke.
