City council on Monday approved a development permit for the restaurant among a couple of other development applications. The restaurant is proposed on three vacant lots along Eighth Street and 114 Avenue, across from the Northern Lights College.
Chief administrative officer Jim Chute noted the lots are actually remediated brownfield sites that used to be occupied by a Turbo gas station.
Mayor Mike Bernier joked that his son told him having a Wendy’s built in Dawson Creek was the only thing he wanted his dad to accomplish as mayor.
The permit requires the successful completion of a 10-day notification period and receipt of the required financial security in the amount of $50,000.
Council also approved a development permit for the construction of a 4,800-square-foot office and warehouse building proposed by Techmation Electric and Controls for 69 Vic Turner Road.
The property currently houses a 40-foot office trailer and two, 40-foot sea-cans which are being used as tool cribs. The proposed building will be used to provide electrical and instrumentation services to the oil and gas industry and approximately 10 employees will be working out of the location.
The permit is also subject to a 10-day notification period, and a $60,000 security bond.
