According to Northside Baptist Church pastor Kenny Chinn, plans have been submitted to the county to make improvements on the North College Road property. The corner of the property is for sale, and a McDonald’s restaurant has been proposed for the lot.

“Lots of permitting is required. However, if everything is approved, we’re going to put a McDonald’s on that corner,” Chinn said. “This deal is completely incumbent upon approval of submitted plans.”

Until the plans are approved, no improvements can be made to the existing Northside Baptist Church property.

UPDATE: The Golden Arches are indeed coming to Murrayville, said Karla Taylor, a spokeswoman for McAnderson’s, Inc., the Wilmington-based company that owns 15 other local McDonald’s restaurants.

Work on the restaurant “is scheduled to break ground on Dec. 17 and should take about 90 days to build,” Taylor said.

“Of course, the weather will play a major factor in that but it should be pretty close,” she said.

The restaurant will feature “the new updated modern look,” Taylor said.

The size and color scheme “are still to be worked out,” she said.

Dennis Anderson is the owner and operator of the McDonald’s. Anderson owns 15 other McDonald’s locations in New Hanover and Brunswick Counties.

“This has been a site he has been working on for years,” Taylor said.

The restaurant will be located in the 2500 block of North College Road.
