A public meeting is planned for Monday, August 31 to discuss a proposed restaurant/bar on Scott Boulevard.

The Medlock Area Neighborhood Association (MANA) said on its website, “The following notice for a special land use permit was distributed to some MANA residents. The proposed development raises many concerns. We encourage all to attend the August 31 community meeting, scheduled by the developer, to take place at 7 p.m. at 1744 Scott Blvd.”

The MANA post points out that the proposed three-story development would be close to residential areas, including the Medlock neighborhood and Tuxworth Springs community. A Facebook event urging neighbors to attend the meeting said, “The flyer announcing this meeting indicates that, not only will the business be 3 stories tall, but it will remain open until 2 a.m. The residents of Larry Lane are, understandably, concerned at the idea of an enormous, hulking bar with blazing lights, music, and drunk drivers outside their back doors and open into the wee hours.”

It adds, “We need more specifics about what exactly they are proposing and we need [to] voice our concerns regarding any aspect of the proposed development that will significantly diminish the quality of life for this side of the neighborhood.”

Decaturish reached out to Restaurants Consulting Group – the company listed on the public notice – and a person who answered the phone said the best source of information would be the community meeting on Monday.
