The Hagerstown Planning Commission on Wednesday approved a site plan for a second Bob Evans restaurant in Hagerstown.
The new Bob Evans would be built at 190 Railway Lane on the southwestern edge of the city limits, city officials said.
The proposed 4,142-square-foot restaurant, which would be near the Outback Steakhouse and Hagers-town Ford, would be on a 1.25-acre property.
Richard Kaspar, senior regional real estate manager for Bob Evans Farms, said company plans call for the restaurant to open in May 2004.
While 62 parking spaces are required, the proposal calls for providing 84 parking spaces.
The site plan estimates the business will get 400 cars per day, including employees.
Steven Zaks, a planning commission member, expressed concern the business will add to a busy intersection at Underpass Way and Railroad Lane.
