POR­TERDALE — The Por­terdale City Coun­cil ap­proved the fi­nal site plans for the city’s new Waf­fle House at its called meet­ing Thurs­day night.

Joe Hoff­man, Waf­fle house as­sis­tant vice president of real estate, de­scribed the new restau­rant to the coun­cil dur­ing its work ses­sion be­fore the meet­ing.

“The build­ing will be more of a his­toric, ur­ban look­ing build­ing, sim­i­lar to

Por­terdale Mill and not a typ­i­cal Waf­fle House that has the yel­low fas­cia,” he said.

Hoff­man said the restau­rant’s dump­ster will be en­closed and made of the same ma­te­rial used for the build­ing.

He also said the com­pany will use the same brick used on the Cov­ing­ton By­pass store for the new con­struc­tion.

Hoff­man de­scribed the land­scap­ing that will be added to the project to en­hance the ap­pear­ance of the restau­rant and pre­serve the char­ac­ter of the com- mu­nity, in­clud­ing plant­ing trees and shrubs to func­tion as a screen on the Elm Street Al­ley.

The new restau­rant will also have bike racks and pedes­trian ac­cess.

Por­terdale Mayor Ar­line Chap­man said the Waf­fle House was com­plied with the wishes of the city in the build­ing de­sign and land­scap­ing. She said she be­lieves that the new restau­rant will be fin­ished by the end of sum­mer.
