SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - After months of inactivity, a flurry of action recently has put the plans for a McDonald's on Broughton Street in downtown Savannah back on the fast track.

Back in May, an extension was granted for the project with the Historic Review Board, giving more time to McDonald's and 246 West Broughton Street property owner, Daryl Walker, to work out details of an agreement. Not much had happened on the project until last month.

Savannah City Council was presented with a resolution for approval allowing a few right of way requests for the project, including awnings and signage. Next up, a request with the city for seating along the sidewalk area. Once those issues have been resolved, a building permit request is expected as early as March.

The Savannah Historic District Board of Review issued a Certificate of  Appropriateness for a 12-month extension of the proposed rehabilitation on May 11, 2011 which will expire 12 months from the original approval date, April 14, 2012.  The decision is attached and the plans submitted for review can be accessed from the meeting minutes available on the Metropolitan Planning Commission website at

Several encroachments onto the City right-of-way were also requested from the Mayor and Aldermen which were approved on Dec. 15, 2011.
