Taco Bell being considered in Ogdensburg
OGDENSBURG — A Taco Bell restaurant could come to Ogdensburg’s Gateway Plaza on Ford Street Extension.
The city’s planning board approved a project application submitted by Michael McCracken of Hospitality, Syracuse and Chris Kambar, APD engineering that could pave the way for a new fast food option in the city.The site plan first came before planners in May, but was approved at the June meeting.
Although site-plan approval doesn’t guarantee the project will move forward, Thew Associates Land Surveyors has noted on their website that they have been retained to survey the project by Taco Bell’s architecture and engineering consultant.
The company will survey and map a 4.7 area area of the Gateway Plaza to help facilitate a subdivision of the property to allow for a build site.
Taco Bell restaurants currently operate in Massena and Potsdam.
Ogdensburg city council and planners have been working to the market the city’s many vacant properties in recent years.
Efforts are currently underway to find developers for the former Shade Roller property and Newell Building. The city is also working to secure properties along the waterfront currently owned, but unused, by the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center.
