Edgeworth to hold hearing for proposed Taco Bell

Friday, August 16, 2019 | 1:19 AM

Edgeworth Borough has posted a notice on their website for a Conditional Use Hearing on Tuesday, August 20, coinciding with the scheduled monthly meeting of borough Council. The hearing will concern a conditional use application to construct a Taco Bell restaurant at 25 Ohio River Boulevard.

This location is currently a parking lot associated with the Edgeworth Square medical office building at 111 Hazel Lane, and was also the proposed site for both a McDonald’s and a Chipotle restaurant in 2015. Both proposed developments generated concerns from community members regarding traffic flow and safety, and it’s possible that this new proposal will have the same issues.
