Olive Garden moving forward with approval for more parking spaces
The Dawson County Planning Commission on Nov. 20 voted unanimously to approve a variance for additional parking for the Olive Garden planned to go in at the corner of Dawson Forest Road East and Ga. 400 where Huck’s Apple Barn formerly stood. In an Oct. 11 application to the county planning and development department, Olive Garden Holdings requested 152 parking spaces as opposed to the maximum 86, stating that “if parking is inadequate it will negatively impact the new restaurant’s success.” No representative from Olive Garden Holdings was present at the meeting but the planning commission decided to move forward with approving the application.
