McDonald's coming to Savoy
The Village of Savoy continues to expand as new businesses are planning to come to the village.
A grocery store and a fast food restaurant are planning on joining a previously announced pharmacy chain in a new development area at the corner of Curtis Road and Dunlap Avenue (U.S. 45).
The McDonald's is proposed just south of Curtis on the west side of Dunlap.
The fast food chain will join a proposed CVS Pharmacy, which would be at the corner of Curtis Road and Dunlap Avenue.
Village Manager Dick Helton said bringing in new businesses and restaurants gives residents more options to spend money locally.
He said village officials are looking at ways to make sure the busy intersection doesn't get too congested.
Savoy Zoning Administrator Dan Davies said construction on McDonald's is expected to begin in the spring.
Village officials are not disclosing the name of the proposed grocery store.
