BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) – Chick-fil-A will find out today if the restaurant won its appeal to open a store in Birmingham's Five Points South. The project was originally denied by the city's design review committee, but Chick-fil-A appealed.
Committee members have voiced concerns about traffic, parking and the design of the building. Chick-fil-A says its willing to change the design.
"As you heard the chairman of the board say, there are 9 distinctly different architectural styles in the area...so take your pick," says Chick-fil-A attorney Charlie Beavers.
If Chick-fil-A wins the appeal, they will have to present a new design to the review committee.
