Great news: Waffle House Development Update

A great win for the neighborhood!

We recently advised you that Waffle House had been seeking approval to build a 24-hour restaurant at Kirby Parkway & Kirby Gate Drive next to the Autozone.
KSANA, Greentrees, Keswick/Sulgrave, Kirby Oaks, Kirby Trace and Balmoral formed a collation of neighbors to oppose the development on the grounds that a 24-hour Commercial operation would add noise, trash and the potential for crime to our neighborhoods.
A group of about 20 folks from this partnership attended the Land Use Control Board Meeting on Thursday the 9th. Waffle House saw how committed the neighbors were in our opposition, and they decided to withdraw their application and will move to another location closer to 385 and away from our homes.
Thanks to everyone who participated and all of the hard work leading up to this victory. Just shows the impact a united neighborhood can make.
