The Italian restaurant should begin construction early next year.
It will be located on a large empty lot next to Golden Corral on Ross Clark Circle.
Planning commission members had one concern, the traffic that the area will bring.
It was discussed if the city should put a shared fee on Olive Garden for a stop light.
Planning Commission Chairman Chuck Harris says, "No, we gonna know that we're going to need a light, we hate to put anymore lights onto the Circle than are necessary and will wait to those two new restaurants go in and we'll decide if a light is needed there,"
Tgi Friday’s is that other restaurant.
