A controversial plan has been resurrected for the development of a diner on the backend of The Villages.

T-Lynne Properties LLC is bringing again a plan for a two-story constructing to be often known as Teague Plaza to be constructed on 1.64 acres of land alongside County Highway 25/Teague Path close to the intersection of Griffin Avenue.

The brand new constructing could be constructed behind properties on Tarrson Boulevard on the Historic Facet of The Villages.

The proposed mission had already raised considerations of Villagers in 2016. They objected to the diner’s seemingly early morning hours and the site visitors it will deliver. Though Darrell’s Diner has not been formally named in paperwork filed with the City of Girl Lake, Villagers have lengthy been suspicious of Lawrence Breech of T-Lynne Properties, who  is thought to be an investor within the Darrell’s Diner chain, in addition to web cafes.

After a hard-fought battle, T-Lynne Properties gained approval for the mission again in 2018. Paperwork on file with the city point out the mission was shelved partly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Step one in reviving the mission might be a presentation earlier than the Parks, Recreation & Tree Advisory Board set for five:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 9 at Girl Lake City Corridor.
