The fast food franchise will be located located at the corner of Oddie Boulevard and Mall Drive in Sparks just west of the Reno city line and will replace an older store that sits across the street once construction is complete.
The proposed 3,642-square-foot, drive-thru, stand-alone restaurant will be built on just under half an acre.
Developers said the space is a typical size for the restaurant chain and that the new store will offset rental and other fiscal issues plaguing the current restaurant location.
City planner Jim Rundle said complications had surfaced with regard to parking, but that a reciprocal agreement with the shopping center, which also houses Lowe’s, had remedied the problem.
Planning commissioner Scott Barnes asked developers whether glare from headlights would be a problem given that the design plans place the store very near to the road.
Developers and city planners responded that this would not be an issue because of landscaping design plans to deflect light from the store’s windows.
The special use permit is good for one year with a possible one-year extension.
The permit provides for a fast food restaurant at the location, meaning that the space is not limited to only a Jack in the Box, Rundle said.
